Spring fairy

Hello lovely people,

LOTV are currently running a fab Spring themed challenge on their facebook page and you can find all the details here.
There are some absolutely brilliant prizes on offer so do take a peek.
Here's my Design Collective card that I hope will inspire you to join in with the challenge.

Handmade card with Spring fairy (image from LOTV)

If you think the image is looking a little different to my usual it's because I've used my new Inktense pencils!
I still need a lot of practice but feel I have got the basic method of shading and I do really like the softer look than I can get with my Copics.

I used a new die to create the little swirls and beaded sprays tucked among the flowers.
I don't think I would ever use this die all in one piece but it looks really lovely cut into smaller pieces.
