Bone Fairy by Lemon Shortbread

I have absolutely heaps and heaps and heaps of digi stamps that I have printed but have never coloured, so I am on a bit of a mission to try and use some different ones. This gorgeous fairy is from Lemon Shortbread which I bought months ago and have just left in my digis folder, so out she came for a few challenges today.

If you look closely you can just about make out the Wink of Stella on her wings, which my camera never picks up very well, but it always looks so shimmery in real life. Used quite a few new goodies on this one too - my papers from Michele R Designs, my sentiment stamp and butterfly frame die from Whimsy and my mini fairies dies from Joanna Sheen. (She's got a lot of fab new lacy dies which I just have to have, but have over spent on my crafting budget already this month as I bought the full set of Distress Markers, ready to learn from Tracy Payne!)

This card is for...
One Sweet Challenge to use pastels, lace, ribbon and pearls
Live & Love Crafts Challenge #34 Signs of Spring (It looks like the flowers are just growing in Bone Fairy's garden or she's just picked them all to go on her dress and in her hair LOL)
Crafty Sentiments Challenge to use more than one fold (I made an easel card).

  2. Lovely card and beautiful digi stamp. I can so relate to your mounds of digis that you don't get to use. I am in the same boat with ya. (giggle) I had to start a file for different companies they are all from cause I kept forgetting where I got them.
    Love the wink of stella you used on her wings, and your coloring is just gorgeous.
