Just A Note - FFFC #184 'Embellish It'


We're kicking off a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge today.  The theme for the next 2 weeks is 'Embellish It!'  I hope you can play along with us.  Please visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge to get complete details on the challenge and to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to join us.

Here's the card that I came up with.

A closer look at this fairy image being featured.

This image, designed by Sylvia Zet, of Wee Stamps, is called 'Cindy.'  Isn't she adorable?  The digital stamp is available directly from Sylvia--details HERE.  If you prefer the rubberstamp, it's art of the Whimsy Stamps rubberstamp collection.

Colouring of the image was done with my alcohol-ink markers along with a few coloured pencils. I've added some cool-highlight glitter to the wings.
