Distressed Fairy

Good morning, I hope everyone is well and enjoying the new week. We have a new challenge for you at Bearly Mine Designs and this week it's an easy one for you  - Digi Days.

I've used Donna's latest Steampunk papers - Steampunk Fantasy 2.

These papers really are fabulous they are brilliant for both male and female cards.

I have used the gorgeous Saturated Canary image 'Sweater Socks' Fairy' and coloured her with ProMarkers along with some Stickles on her wings.  Everything has been layered onto Kraft card stock and the edges distressed and inked.  I coloured some seam binding for my bow and punched some flowers from the Steampunk papers and leaves from the Kraft card stock, the punched flowers have been topped with some blue flowers from my stash.

We have three fabulous Sponsors this week:
