A baby blue fairy card!

Hi! I'm here again for my Saturday post of my blogathon weekend!

With today's card, I'm a bit more in my comfort zone... I've made a monochromatic blue (and white) card, using this cute fairy by Mo Manning, called "Baby Fairy Ayana".

I used this sketch by The Desconstructed Sketch.

Again... layers! more and more layers! yay!

I replaced the hearts with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and leaves from Marianne Creatables. I also added a few butterflies from my new Butterflies border die from Joy Crafts, with pearls from WOC.

Oh my, it's difficult to make a monochromatic card... I spend hours trying to find the right papers, so many kind of blue colours!  at the end, I ended up with a blue and white stripes paper from Papermania Pastel Spots and Stripes paper pad, the Tatty Teddy Me to you paper pad and a piece of scrap from my stash.

I also used my new Stamp from Papermania Urban Stamps with  a blue ink and used it as one of the background layers. I'm in love with this stamp... I can't wait to use it again and again!

I inked all the paper edges with blue ink for a pop of colour!

As usual, I coloured the image with my Promakers....
It was a delight to colour this image.
from her curly hair to the little dress!
I also attempted to colour the fairy in a darker skin... Hopefully it shows!

For her hair I used: Eggnog, Buttermilk, Sandstone, Raw Sienna and Cocoa.

For her skin: Sandstone, Vanilla and Almond.

For the pebbles: Cold Grey 5, 3 and 1.

For all the rest: Cornflower, Powder Blue and Blender pen.
