A DAY FOR DAISIES - Bundle of Fairy Love

Happy Thursday everyone!  If I haven't said this enough, I just want to thank everyone who follows my blog and leaves me such wonderful comments.  I am truely grateful for each and everyone of you and I love to create cards and other items and be able to share them with you:)

First up today, I have a card using "Bundle of Fairy Love" and it's sentiment from A DAY FOR DAISIES SHOP.  This image is actually from the July Club Kit.  I LOVE the KIT CLUB because you get an AMAZING kit of digi images and sentiments each month plus FABULOUS deals on other images from A DAY FOR DAISIES SHOP.   You'll definitely want to check this deal out, you will be glad you did!!

When I work with images, I have two basic processes I use.  Most of the time, I have an idea and color the image all at once in one sitting.  There are other images, however, that I color in parts and then the whole color scheme comes together for me at the end.  This is what I did for this particular image.  I photographed the image before it was fully complete just to give an example of my process for coloring this BEAUTIFUL image.

As you can see below, I started with the clothing and then did the mother's hair.  I added the child's hair and other skin tones, including cheek color later along with the wings, which I did last.  I am very proud of how this turned out.  Coloring done with Copics and Atyou Spicas and circle cut done with Lifestyle Crafts die.  Sentiment and scalloped circle cut with Nesties and I used part of a circle punch for the corners of the backing paper behind the sentiment.  DPs are from Wild Rose Studio and I have used Prism, Bazzill and SU cardstocks.  I added bling and bling butterfly, which are from Recollections.  Brads are from the Eyelet Outlet.

Oh my goodness, this is such a breathtaking card. There is something so peaceful and loving about it. That is an incredible image and you have set it in such a beautiful layout. The papers are lovely and the butterfly is just a perfect little touch. This really and truly is an incredibly beautiful card. Lee xx
