Now thats a pink tutu!

I've had this image in my possession since the beginning of December and have just been able to colour her up thanks to my new office/crafty space! It was a long stretch of having all my work stuff unorganized and all over the place. But I've finally completed my new office and feel like I'm back in the saddle again!

I'm sure you've all seen the relatively new DigiShop/Blog of Saturated Canary. There are a ton of cute and funky girly (and boyish) images! This one in particular spoke to me, since it truly looks bang-on to my daughter when she's dressed up in her tinkerbell costume with her bright pink hello kitty tutu underneath, along with some legwarmers and a side pony! No joke. So I coloured it up as close as possible to my little 'whispy' fairy. Yep, her tutu really is that pink!

I'm entering this into the current challenge over at the SATURATED CANARY BLOG. The challenge is to use dies or punches. I used my brand new nestabilities scallop border die for my card and kept it pretty simple to keep 'Whispy' the main attraction. I've posted a photo of the copics I used to colour her up. I added some stardust stickles to her wings, skirt and shoes and also some rhinestones on the tulle of her skirt. I cut her out and adhered her to the card base with some 3D pop dots. My trusty bow-easy effortlessly made the double bow and I added a few pearl embellishments to finish it off.

Other challenges I'm entering:

The Pink Elephant - Photo Inspiration (the cupcake pic caught my eye :)

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Happy Highlights
