Fairies, Blossoms and Butterflies

Good evening my blogfriends... as mentioned in one of my earlier posts, my LOTV fairies arrived and I coloured them during the week.  After a busy morning shopping for my elderly folks, we got home in time to watch the Bulls thrash the Stormers.  This was one of our biggest matches ever, the Super 14.  Both home teams got into the final and unfortunately my team, the Stormers lost. But they didn't deserve to win today. Looked as if they had lead in their shoes.  Well done to the Bulls supporters, enjoy the celebration. The Cape is very quiet at the moment, we're drowning our sorrows - sniff, sniff!

I've decided to enter this gorgeous fairy in the LOTV challenge.  All you need to do is follow their sketch and use a LOTV image. Here is my creation, I hope they like it and I hope you do too.

And here is a close up as per usual.

The DP is new, a sheet of 12x12 paper which I saw in a little shop at the N1 Shopping Centre this morning. Just had to use it as it matched the colours used in my fairy image so perfectly.  Coloured in my fairy with copics and used the blender pen a lot.The tips from the LOTV Inspiration Blog helped tremendously.  I was so thrilled with the final result of this image. 

Thank you for all your lovely visits and comments. Don't forget I have a Chat Box now, so if you're online, would love to hear from you.

I'm off to watch a movie now, so toodles until later.  Cheerio Sharon xoxox
