Crafty Cardmakers #12 - What's New?

Gosh dont the weeks fly by! We're onto challenge 12 at Crafty Cardmakers which is a blog designed for newer and less experienced cardmakers, papercrafters and bloggers so pop on over if you fit the bill! Even if you're not new you can join in but I do like to see you trying something new or different to challenge YOURSELF!

So what's new?? Well I found these fabulous colouring pages over the weekend by Selina Fenech. I've long admired her fairies artwork and spotted she has some free (yes FREE!!) colouring pages to play with whoop whoop! I've coloured this one called Daisy with promarkers using greys to add shadows and coloured the wings with a copic spica glitter pen. I've edged using a brilliance (peacock) inkpad and used my new sewing machine! I'm getting a little bit neater with that now!
Background papers are My Minds Eye and Moonglow starburst stains which are also sewn on. The charm is blog candy I won a couple of weeks ago on Stampin for the weekend blog. I added a sticky gem coloured gold to the centre of the daisy for a bit of bling. The ribbon is also new from my secret santa :D

I'm also entering this into....
Colour Create - Lemon & Lime
Papertake - New beginnings
Crafty Catz - Bright & Sparkly
