The Emerald Faerie Garden Challenge #1

Emerald Fairies Brighter WM There is a brand new challenge blog just started called The Emerald Faerie Garden Challenge. I came across these gorgeous designs by accident a couple of weeks or so ago and so I am thrilled to be able to enter into their first ever challenge.

This started life as an ordinary card and ended up as a wedding card as it was the most suitable thing I had available when my Daughter phoned me half an hour before she was leaving for a friend’s wedding. They do look awfully fond of each other so I thought it might make a cute wedding card, and even I can’t throw something together in less than 30 minutes!

The image is called Willy & Mia, coloured with my promarkers, and I have used papers from Bearly Mine Designs, Summer Lace, I think, lol

The embellishments are from my stash.

These were a treat to colour as they are just so cute.

The light conditions were either too bright or too dark, arghhhh, so I have used the bright sunlit one for the main image above, but the darker one for an image close up. The actual colour was closer to the darker image, but the darker picture overall doesn’t look as good. Emerald Fairies Darker Image WM
