Cute lil Faeries

I spotted these at the bottom of my garden, or did I?Mo 11.08.10

My neighbour certainly has a pond and it definitely gets frogs in it ‘cos on occasion they don’t respect the boundary and sneak into my garden, and ‘horrors’ on one occasion in my house. If only I had had these cute little faeries on hand to weave their magic and turn it into a handsome prince. Knowing my luck though it would remain green and slimy, and very definitely un-kissable.

Anyhow the image is a combination of three separate faerie images that Mo Manning has designed and come in a set of 5 little sweeties. All three fairies are surrounding the Frog Prince from Meljen Designs. I like to think this is a moment in time captured just before the air goes smokey and ‘poof’ a handsome devil appears in place of the frog.  Let’s face it the frog stands no chance with three wands pointing at him (Oh dear I really must get out more …..)

Mo 11.08.10 Image

It has been coloured in with my promarkers, and it was very difficult as in order to be able to fit the image onto a card I had to shrink it down quite small, which meant I was only just touching the pen very lightly against the paper in the smaller places, like limbs etc. As it is the finished thing is still around 7” square, the card that is, not the image.

The flowers came in a bargain basement lot from QVC, and the bps are very old Pocket Full of Posies from DCWV.

I am entering it into the following challenges:-

Mo’s Challenge Blog – Things with Wings – Obviously the faeries

Flutterby  Wednesday – Open Challenge, provided it has a butterfly, faerie etc.

Crafty Creations – Winged Things – Again the faeries

Papertake Weekly – Old, New, Borrowed, Blue – The old here are the papers

Bee Crafty – All about the image – Clever use of digital images. I have used four here and had to overlay them to make them fit so a degree of image manipulation was required

By The Cute And Girly – Animal antics – The frog
