Tiddly inks - Fabulous Friday

Hello and good morning everyone -----

Here is my Design Team card for Fabulous Friday over at Tiddly Inks. The gorgeous digital image I used this week is called Poppy Pixie, isn't she the cutest thing ever.  The making of this card coincided with one of my oldest friend's birthday (we've known each other for over 30 years), so this is actually her birthday card as well as my DT card......and she loved it.

To really show off Christy's fabulous drawing I decided to create a CAS card and only use a few colours for the flowers as I wanted to keep a soft and gently look. FYI There are more pixies with flowers in the Tiddly Ink store - why not check them out.


Here's What I Did
I used an A5 scalloped card base which I matted and layered with lilac card. The image and sentiment/layout was printed directly onto watercolour card using my software. The image was then water coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils. To finish off I added a touch of glitter and a sprinkling of sequins.
