Comfy Slippers Fairy

I love all these new fairy images from Saturated Canary and managed to buy some this week and just had to use one for this week's Challenge #51 over on the Saturated Canary challenge blog, which was to use a colouring technique. I chose to use the dotted background technique which I don't think I have ever really used properly. Not sure I have done so this time either, but I do kind of like how it makes my fairy stand out a bit more.

This card is also for Just Add Ink's Challenge #180 to add colouring and for Totally Gorguss' Challenge #199 to use texture. I think with all my glitter and die cut, as well as the dotted background making my image come to the forefront a bit, that there is enough texture without needing to emboss anything! Feels it with all the glitter anyway!

And here it is... Her hair took me absolutely ages to do and my lightest Copic marker ran out just as I had finished the first layer of colour and I don't have a reinker for it, so had to go back over with the next lightest colour and change it all completely! Argh! Must order a few reinkers now!
