Fairy Tabia - Mo Manning

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Its wet, grey & yukky here today so I hope where ever you are its a lot nicer for you.
Today I have a card to share that I made for a couple of challenges. Now I try my best not to miss Mo's challenges & this week its anything goes.....obviously with a Mo image, but who wouldn't want to use those, they are fabulous.
Now I've been having a play around with a few of my digi's & trying a few things so I thought I would show you my first one.
This is 'Fairy Tabia' by the uber talented Mo Manning. You can of course get Mo's images from here.
The image I cropped & only used the head, wing & bubbles part. Click on her name to see the original image  in full.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts whose challenge I've also made the card for. Seam binding & lace, which you can only just see are from my stash.

Papers are a Whiff Of Joy pad, the sentiment I also cut from the same pad. All paper has been matted onto light blue card & then onto dark blue card. Card blank itself was made with navy blue A4 card. Large pearl on the bow from my stash.

She was of course coloured with Copics & I added Glossy Accents to the bubbles which you can just see the light reflecting off them. I went with an Olive looking skin tone.

Well thats pretty much it. This is the reason I love digi images sooooo much they are so much more versatile & just by cropping its changed the way the image looks.

Thank you soooo much for stopping by you are all so fabulous, hugs for everyone who stops by mmwah
