Dancing Queen

My youngest daughter has a birthday coming up soon. She just loves to dance and she is rather fond of fairies and so when I came across ‘A spritely sprite’ at Squigglefly I knew it was meant for her.

Materials used:
Squigglefly – A spritely sprite
Copic and Spectrum Noir pens
colouring card
snippets of silver, purple, black and patterned card
Wink of Stella Shimmer Clear
DL card blank
A5 card blank

I printed out my image to the desired size on card suitable for alcohol ink pens and coloured it in with the Copic and Spectrum Noir pens. I added some wink of stella to the wings then trimmed the image to size and matted and layered it onto silver and black card before attaching it to the card blank. I printed off the sentiment, matted it onto white card and attached to the card front.

I coloured in a second image using purple instead of blue but the wings did not come out as I liked so I cut them off. Now I am not sure which one to send her! Her favourite colour is blue so I may send that one but then I am not sure if the wingless image looks the better coloured of the two. Her birthday is not until the end of the month so I have a couple of weeks to make a decision!

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Love how you changed it up and made two completely different cards! The glimmer on the wings is lovely. Thanks for playing in Squigglefly’s challenge!

    Pippa, Think you did a fine job on each of the colors, and this is a darling image too. (I thought of the ABBA song “Dancing Queen’ when I saw your post title). Actually I like the winged fairy best, I think, because of the WoS sparkle. This is just a really happy, spritely image, so I think either one would be a fine choice for your card. That sentiment really fit with the image and your particular occasion too. Well done! Happy Sunday, TFS & Hugs

    Love your gorgeous coloring of Spritely Fairy. And isn’t it easy to make up a second card using the same image? I often do that myself. Thanks for playing in Your Scrapbook Place challenge this month.
