Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 72

This week, at Crafty Cardmakers, we want to see 'Winged Things'! The challenge has been set by team mate Marie.

We're sponsored this time by
It won't surprise anyone who visits here regularly to find I've chosen a fairy image, although it's not from Ching Chou Kuik or Molly Harrison this time!

The image is from a stamp by Crafter's Companion, called something like Rose Bay Willow or some such. (Lost the details!) I've finally been happy with the stamped image, having mounted it onto some Kling On. Previously, I've tried the Crafter's Companion idea of rock-a-blocks, but they make the lines too chunky for my taste. And, I didn't use Promarkers! Just for a change, I pulled out my Derwent Coloursoft pencils. I blended using a blending pencil, and although it hasn't come out in the photo, I used four coats of the burnishing pencil on the wings for shine, before adding some detail with Sakura Stardust pen.

The paper is from Kate Knight (I love her bright, bold designs). I've added a Spellbinder die cut (Lotus medallion) which I cut using Coredinations Whitewash (outer section, raised) and Craft Creations Shimmer Paper(inner section, flat to paper). I decided the result needed just a little further embellishment, so I added some small punched flowers, and gave them bead centres. Then, I decided that the same beads would look great in the central cut out of the die cuts, so I arranged some there.
 I hope you can join us this time!

What a pretty card, I really love how you've coloured the fairy, she looks beautiful. The flowers and medallion accentuate the paper you've used perfectly. You really have patience adding all those beads, especially the ones in the centre of the medallion I'd never manage that.
