Glitter, Glitter Everywhere...and a New Magical Blogspot!

Good morning peeps.

Well it's finally here, the launch of a great new challenge blog Magical Monday Challenge and I am really honoured to be part of their fab DT. The challenges are fortnightly and are designed to showcase your magical themed images such as Sweet Pea, Fairies from LOTV, Tilda's with wings to name but a few. So here is my first offering for the theme of Glitter, yes you can sparkle till your hearts content. For the first challenge we are being sponsored by the wonderful Pollycraft and the prize is a set of Lilybean Fairies.
I have chosen to use a gorgeous lil fairy from Pergamano and teamed her with some great glittered DP's from K & Co (sorry the collection escapes me as they are rather old!). I then added some girly embellies such as lace, ribbon and lots of stickles and bling.
I am entering her in the following challenges:
Passion for ProMarkers -Challenge #61 'Distressing'
Crafty Creations -Challenge #77 'Happy or Sweet
Stamp Something - Something Flowery

I hope you like her and good luck for the challenge, hope to see you there!
ProMarker Colour Recipe

I then distressed the edges with Tattered Rose and Walnut Stain Distress Ink Pads and added lashings of Crystal Stickles and Bling.
