Crafts & Me DT - Use a Digi!

Wooohooo!! It is time for another fabulous challenge at Crafts and Me challenge and this week our challenge is to use a digi - nice and easy!! I have used one of Crafts and Me's stunning new digi images for October - Lady of Opal - she's stunning isn't she!?!?! I have teamed her with some soft green/blue papers from what is left of my Prima Annalee paper pad.

I coloured the image with copics and added lots of stickles - I wanted a soft ethereal look to her so kept her gorgeous dress with it's flowing ribbons very pale. I have coloured the background with Prismacolor pencils.

I added a flower created with Magnolia's peony doohickey die which I cut from some of the Prima paper before stamping with a Hero Arts stamp. I added a brad from my stash and some liquid pearl dots to the centres of the petals.

I added some acetate flowers from my stash for some sparkle and the gorgeous swirls were cut with Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes die.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Crafts and Me challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations! Thanks for looking! x
