Butterfly Fairy


Over at Paper Craft Planet Michelle Perkett's Studio has a great challenge...

Challenge #4 - Your Creative Goddessness :)

... to make a card or project that really portrays who YOU are as a Creative Goddess... are you buttons and bling? or flowers and filly? or clean and simple? Use one of Michelle's images that closest represents you as a Creative Goddess.

I've used The Butterfly Fairy and embellished my card with flowers, ribbons, pearls and butterflies!!!

I coloured the fairy with my Copic Markers and used a Sakura Clear Glitter Pen for her wings.
I distressed the edge with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

I cut the butterflies using my Silhouette.
The flowers, pearls and ribbon are from my stash.

Michelle asked us to give a reason for our choice of "Inner Goddess Image".  I chose the Butterfly Fairy because...

...As I grow older I watch my family grow with me. The life changing experiences of marriage and childbirth correspond with the major transformation that the butterfly undergoes as it emerges from its chrysalis. We emerge with a new found strength and freedom to explore, whilst still maintaining a very delicate and fragile existence. Day to day our emotions rise and fall, as the butterfly rises and falls on the breezes that carry it through life.

This card also fits in with the challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenges which is to use a Digital image.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Hope you like it.
