Elements - Fire

     I love the challenge theme at AuroraWings this month - Be Inspired by one of the 4 Elements: Earth, Air, Wind or Fire.  I chose this wonderful AW image "Enchanted Visions" and did it in the colors of fire.


This one is based on the sketch from Creative Sketchy Girls.


     The background is done with watercolor paints and the girl and fairies are colored with my ProMarkers.  I had to be very careful with the watercolors around the fairy wings but it worked out OK.

     I cut everything into squares; the image, both background pieces and the card base.  I embossed the two CS pieces with my Linen folder, then arranged everything on the card front.  I wrapped it all with two ribbons from my stash and tied one of them into a bow.

     I didn't do any sentiment because I thought the image spoke for itself.

     Challenges:
Color Inspiration Monday
Crafting By Designs
Crafting from the Heart
Crafty Addicts
Incy Wincy
Kraftin' Kimmie
Pammie's Inky Pinkies
Through the Craft Room Door

     That does it for me today.  I have a busy weekend planned but I'll be posting again tomorrow, maybe even twice depending on how much I get done.  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
