Morgan Le Fae, the Faerie

     It's another Tuesday and we're starting another "Anything Goes" challenge at Through the Craft Room Door.  This time we're sponsored by Fitztown and they generously supplied images for the team.  The first time I saw the "Fae 4" digi, I thought of the ancient King Arthur legend and the magical Morgan le Fae, who some believed was an enchanted faerie.

     I wanted a pink/lavender combo so she's colored in pinks with a combination of ProMarkers and ShinHan Touch Twin markers.  I also added glitter gel ink to the roses, the butterfly, and to her single earring but I find that all that sparkle isn't showing up well in the photo.  One of my favorite embellishments on cards is sparkle and glitter is my usual way to accomplish that.  But I do love glitter gel pens because they give a subtle sparkle and generally I have more control over putting that sparkle in small areas.

     I colored her hair with a combination of soft gray colors, then highlighted it with white to give it an ethereal feel.  I wanted something other than a "human hair" color so tried to match the roses in the image.  The pink and white dp came from the Dream Catcher stack by First Edition and the deep eggplant CS for the mats is from Bazzill.  The rose embellishments are from Recollections -- they were completely white but I colored the edges with ProMarkers.  A second of my fav embellies are 3-D flowers -- on cards, they give such great texture and dimension.
