Colour Create Time of the Week

The week is racing towards the weekend, only two days to go! Thursday already, which means it's Colour Create day with our inspirational picture chosen for you by our lovely Sharon with a T!  Gorgeous fuschias aren't they! 
30 Jun - Challenge 74 - Sharon T
So our colours are Fuschia, Green and White and this week we have the optional extra of making your own flowers.
I've gone with this super little Kraftin Kimmie Fairy and coloured her with my Promarkers, primarily - Fuschia!! 
 I fancied her skipping across a woodland glade over the toadstools and flowers and have cut her out with an oval nestie die but just keeping her foot and wing tip outside of the cutting area.  I started colouring her at matey Lesley's on Saturday, and we had quite an in depth discussion as to what colours my toadstools could be as fuschia wasn't very lifelike!! Lesley did then point out that I was using a fairy so perhaps the lifelike argument wasn't really relevant!!
The toadstool is from Whiff of Joy and the flower is a Little Claire Designs stamp - one of those that I bought years ago, have never used, wondered why I bought it.....until now!! The perspective of the daisy was perfect for my little lifelike skipping fairy!!
Papers are My Mind's Eye Lime Twist, Happy Go Lucky, purchased from Crafty Emma's here.  My hand made flowers were made with a Marianne Creatable die with a little gem popped in the middle.
I used my Ink Duster brushes and Broken China Distress Ink for the background clouds.
The sentiment came with the stamp  and with a  final sprinkle of Stickle on her wings I was done.  Hope you like and hope you'll find some time to join in with us this week!
Grab your fairy wings and skip on over to the challenge blog, here  to see all the awesome cards made by my lovely CC teamies!!

Another image I saw being coloured and she is beautiful. Love all the toadstools and love the daisies or are they echinacea? Beautiful fun card. That sexy fairy is clearly just skipping through the meadow from step to step. Hugs, Lesley
