Kraftin' Kimmie - Tallulahbelle

Hi Hi! Just a quick post here before I head to bed... I'm almost completely unpacked (woohoo) and had some time to craft... which resulted in a card you'll see tomorrow, and this card -
I started by colouring Tallulahbelle up using my Spectrum Noir Markers and the cut out her out using my nesting circles. I sat her aside, and picked out this fun paper to use. I layered it up on white cardstock and then onto a Wild Wasabi card base, and popped my fairy image circle on top.... She seemed to disappear a bit, so using the tutorial from Some Odd Girl on colouring clouds I gave it a whirl, using my Spectrum Noirs instead of Copics. For my clouds, I used Ice Greys - IG1, IG2 and for the darkest part IG4, for the sky, I used True Blues - TB1 and TB2. I then layered up the main image circle on to a slightly larger circle and tried it on the patterned paper again. She no longer looked lost! (WOOHOO!) I love this as an easy, cleaner alternative to sponging sky, and will no doubt use it again! I then decided she needed some bling, so I cut out a circle using some glitter paper, and also a butterfly. I then stamped the sentiment from Tallulahbelle, but omitted the "I", then layered it up onto the larger, glitter circle...I then finished off the card with some silver rhinestones in the top right and bottom left corners :)
Here are the colours I used to colour the Fairy -

I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge, and secondly the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge 134 (I was lucky enough to be picked as last weeks winner, woohoo!) And, finally to The Corrosive Challenge, which is Summer Girls
