a challenge card

happy tuesday :) heres a card i made using another cicely mary barker stamp.  this one is willow fairy. 

im entering this over at
papertakeweekly whos theme is happy highlights.
chocolatecoffeecardschallenges whos theme is "glitter latte"
cardmakinmamas: something old ( i havent used this stamp in over 6 months.)


 i stamped the image directly onto kraft cardstock. then colored it with prisma pencils.i just use a blending stub no gamsol and such.
 i added just a touch of  stickles to her wings so they glisten lightly. thats my highlight to fit the ptw challenge.

i added pumice stone distresss stickles to the rock. 
heres the inside. the butterflies are SU and the sentiment is from stephanie at whimsical designs. its from her set whimsical fun volume 1

Wow! As I said before you have been holding out on us. Your coloring is amazing:) There is so much dimension on this card..I can't even begin to imagine how long this one took you! What a perfect sentiment you have paired this up with. Hugs!

I love the look of this...it reminds me of the hand-colored illustrations in some of my mom's fairy tale books from when she was a child. The soft, water-colored effect is lovely.

Thanks for playing with us at CCCC.
