Bookworm Fairy

     I'm so excited to share with you today as this is my first card done as a Guest Designer on the Colour Crazy Challenge.  Ching-Chou Kuik has graciously agreed to be our sponsor and has given us the images we used.  I chose Little Bookworm Fairy.  I've been a fan of Ching-Chou Kuik for a few years now and I do love coloring her images.  

I was inspired by the colors at Sugar Pea Designs.

    I used ProMarkers to color the image, adding purple Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flowers in her hair.  Sorry but I forgot to keep track of the exact colors but next time, I promise to have a list for you.  I also added glitter to her wings before cutting the image and its frame with dies from Sizzix.  

     I made a shaped card using a manual die from Tattered Lace.  The glittered "ribbon" is actually washi tape.  I tied a bow with sheer burgundy ribbon and added the white rose on top of it.  The sentiment was printed, hand cut, and added.


     I'm really happy to be working with the Colour Crazy team as a guest designer for the next three months and look forward to sharing with you my creations.  Remember our theme is always "Anything Goes" and, even though we have a new challenge starting every week, each one runs for two weeks so they overlap each other by a week each time.  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Congratulations on your Guest Designer spot! This is a beautiful creation! I had to smile at your reference to the colours you used - almost every time I make a card, I intend to list the colours I used, for the benefit of visitors, and forget EVERY TIME! What a great idea to use washi tape in place of ribbon! Thanks for sharing your beautiful card with us at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges!
