Saturated Canary Challenge - Sweater Socks Fairy

Hello my lovelies how are you? I'm running a tad late because I forgot to schedule my post & we've been busy building a run & hutch for our new 'French Lop' rabbits for Natalie, Payton & Arjay ;0)

Anyhoo's its time for a brand new challenge over at Saturated Canary & the theme this time issssssss...
WINGED THINGS..
.........I loved this challenge as soon as I saw it as I lurve wings & I had my image all planned out until...........yep until Krista released those gorgeous 'Fairies'........well I had to use one of those!! The only problem was..........'Which one????'.........
I chose 'Sweater Socks' Fairy & the reason is is because I have a HUGE sock addiction, seriously I'm addicted to them, my socks always have to match what I'm wearing lol. I have a huge addiction not just for me either....no, no, no......for all of us!! My youngest only wears black 'Simpson' socks.........he has over 30 pairs lol. You dont want to know how many Natalie has...........although plain socks just bore the pants off me :0(

Anyhoo's now you know how weird I am............ I will tell you what I've used on this card ;0)
I made sure there was an abundance of wings on this creation lol.

Joy Crafts gorgeous 'Butterfly Border' die covered in Shabby White & 'Aged Wine' Fran-Tage.
All the gorgeous flowers are all a selection of Prima.

The gorgeous Fairy I coloured with Copics & added glitter dust to her wings. I also dotted the background & added fran-tage around the edge.
Colours used are..............
E11, E21, E00, E000
E29, E27, E23, E21
V99, V95, V93, V91, V000
C3, C1, C00
BACKGROUND
E55, E53, E51, V95, V91 & Blender pen

The gorgeous papers are Prima which I got from My Crafty Heart & I inked the edges with walnut & machine stitched them. I added 2 different layers of lace, both from my stash. Fence is Magnolia & the small clock is a Marianne die. Feather butterfly from my stash. I've also added gorgeous 'Say it in crystals - Roses' by Prima in the 2 corners. The small butterflies I made using a small punch.

We hope you will play along with us in our 'Winged Things' challenge & if you need that instant Saturated Canary fix then head over to here............where you will also find the gorgeous new fairies & other winged beauties ;0)

Thank you sooooooo much for stopping by & leaving the lovely comments, they always cheer me up ;0)
Squishy hugs to all mmwah
