Hearts Quest Fantasy Challenge #3 & Something Else on Saturday #241 Featuring Tottie Leprechaun from Faery Ink

Good morning and welcome to today's post. Today is the start of this month's new challenge at the Hearts Quest Fantasy Challenge blog and this month's optional theme is to use a leprechaun on your card or project. I have to admit I very rarely use leprechauns, maybe because I don't actually make many good luck cards, but this old cutie from Faery Ink was just what I needed! So glad to have had her in my stack of digi stamp files! 

I went for a traditional green and yellow colour combo on my leprechaun with gorgeous red hair and just love how she came out. Might use these colours again on a different image to see how I like them then!

Good morning and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mythical post. I fancied colouring up some fairies for this week's card and these cuties were my newest fairies purchase which I hadn't used.
