A Fiver :)

I'm really stretched for time this week so don't normally do so many in one but needs must this week!
I'm entering this for...

Passion for Promarkers - Girly & Glittery
Whimsey - Touchy Feely
Papertake - Angels & Fairies
Pile it on - Round
Truly Scrumptious - Sketch

I've been shoppin at Joanna Sheen and Quixotic Paperie and have some new stash to play with!
Background paper is MME Wild Asparagus which is embossed so its tactile (Whimsey) Its also spotty (Pile it on) Image is by Victoria Case and is coloured with promarkers. Cant get more girly than this image which also meets the passion for promarkers challenge and papertake is its a fairy!

Now as a copic user who has recently tried out promarkers I often hear that promarkers dont blend as well. Well I have to disagree! I've put a close up of my colouring so you can see there is absolutely no difference, the only difference is the nib and promarkers have nice names! The hair for example I did in vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa and shale. The wings I used my new Angel wings Shimmerz. I think I put it on a bit thick as it wouldnt dry so I hit it with a heat gun and it kinda bubbled (another tactile element ha!) Also the matting layer is some green felt which Miss Molly found in my stash and handed to me so I thought why not!
I used sakura stardust clear to give her some glitter eyeshadow :)

Flowers are petaloo, the white at the bottom have also been painted with shimmerz. I got the flower centres from Elaines but my brads were a bit big to go through them so I just gave them a quick nip with my cropodile and made the hole bigger :)
Anyway, thanks for lookin!
