Margaret Fae

Hello everybody!!!

Today I'd like to show you a card I made with an artist I found out about not so long ago. She was showing an image she had colored on the Kit and Clowder Facebook page (which I talked about in earlier posts) and I was surprised that I had never seen the image she had colored as I loved it. Then I found out she also was the artist who drew the fabulous image so had to get a couple of them. Her name is Amanda S. Byron and her digital images are for sale in her Etsy shop Faery Ink and her rubber stamps are for sale through Sweet Pea Stamps.
Don't you adore her? I love her big eyes and her pretty hair. I did struggle a while with the card layout though. I really wanted to use the Louvre Ornamental Frame Cut Out that I had ordered from Wild Orchid Crafts a while back with this image and to be honest, just the dark green card with the ornamental frame behind it were already very pretty, I'm sure there will be people who would have stopped there but I really wanted to add some flowers as well. I think I've been getting out jars of flowers and papers and stuff for an hour or two but in the end I'm really pleased with how the card turned out.
A close up of pretty Margaret Fae. As always colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced.
A close up of the gorgeous flowers and rhinestones.
And finally a picture of the little pieces, taken with my phone with very bad light but at least you have an idea of the pieces I've used :).

Hope you like my new card and have some time to craft for yourself!! The weather has been very inviting to do so here, lots of wind and rain. Have a great day everybody!!
