2 in 1

I am a bit behind on the challenges lately, but with only a week until my holiday there's been lots to do, with buying bits and bobs we need and getting myself covered with the DT work for whilst I'm away. Thankfully all seems to be on track now, so decided to have a play with a challenge or two in this case. I've followed the sketch over on Sketch Saturday and combined it with this weeks challenge over on Secret Crafter which is 'Glitter'.

The image is Fairy Chloe from The Greeting Farm, another wonderful image I recieved in a swap. Coloured her with copics and lots of sparkle using sakura stardust pens with a waterbrush. Cut using circle scalloped nesties. The background and edges have been chalked and stardust waterbrushed. Papers are all Dovecraft and pink ribbon is from my scraps. Got the idea of the circles and punched flowers from my buddy Emma, these were also glittered with stardust and a waterbrush. Added sequin flowers and pink brads to hold the circle and flower layers together. Below is a closer photo, to try and show some of the glittery effect.

And lastly here is the sketch to follow from Sketch Saturday.
