As soon as I saw this gorgeous image by Art by MiRan I fell in love with her, but she scared me! She is such a pretty fairy and there's so much in this scene that I didn't think I would be able to colour her in very well and do her justice, but I jumped in with both feet today and gave it a go. I have signed up to Alyce Keegan's Skin and Hair colouring tutorials on her Kit and Clowder Ning site and watched a couple of videos before I started and I think that really helped. (Just have to print out all the homework sheets now and have a proper go at everything).
Anyway this card is for Kit and Clowder's March Challenge to use wings, for Art by MiRan's Facebook Challenge to use flowers and for The Ribbon Girl's March Card Challenge to make a birthday card.
And here she is...
