Lexi 102 Birthday Celebrations

Good morning bloggers. A day late with this one, sorry if anyone has tried to locate this from Lexi’s Creations. Anyhow our challenge this time around is Birthday Celebrations.

We are sponsored by Fairy Dust Crafts with 5 of their lovely digital images.

Lexi 102 I have used a lovely digital image from Delicious Doodles via the Stitchy Bear website. She is called Fae. I coloured her with a combination of copics and promarkers, and also used some sakura sparkle pens to highlight areas, which will be obvious in the pics below this one.

The highlighting is looking white, but in fact I used pink in her hair, and clear on the butterflies, and eyes, but they all look sort of gold in the pic. I find those pens don’t really show up face on and you have to tilt the card to see them. Sometimes I wonder why I bother adding them because if the recipient doesn’t happen to tilt them or display them in the light in the right way they won’t see them either!!

Anyhow the papers are from the lush Vintage Boho pad from Craftwork Cards, and the Butterfly and Sentiment comes from the Craftworks Cards Time Flies Sorbet collection. The butterfly wasn’t really the right colour for the image so I used the same colour copic I had coloured some parts of the butterfly in the image with and coloured it to match.Lexi 102 Angle

I have tried to show the sentiment and how I curled it to look like a real banner waving in the breeze. The diecut is spellbinders and the little glass gems and gems on the butterfly’s spine and it’s trail were in my stash.
