Candy coloured chaos!




Well, talk about being out of my comfort zone!! This card is for my friends daughter who is soon to be 4. She is into Disney princesses and all things girly so this calls for a girly card. Now I have NO Disney crafting stuff whatsoever (and never will have!) so I adapted with a fairy which I coloured in using my copics.



The colour scheme comes from the Copic Colour Challenge which was to use pink, yellow and blue.




The flowers I adapted from tutorials by Wendy Vecchi and my mate Hels. The difference being that I used a Heidi Grace flower stamp and card rather than grunge paper. The only reason being was that I didnt want these to be too big which, when I tried the grunge paper, they were.


I cut the bottoms off all the flower petals so that I could fix them together using a brad to look like the centre of the flower.





Thanks for looking :o)
