Passion for Promarkers - Just a fairytale...

 This card came Top 3 at MilkCoffee challenge blog!

Good morning, dear Bloggers!  It's Tuesday again which sees the start of a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers - this week it's the lovely Lou in the chair and she would like us to create something with the theme 'Just a fairytale' (Think, princes, princesses, castles, dragons, etc)...
This week, we are sponsored ny the fabulous Letraset, who are offering one lucky winner a 6 pack of Flexmarkers!

 Don’t forget you must use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers) and of course follow the theme.
...I decided to go big with my card and made an 8x8 square card base from 2 A4 pieces.  I used First Edition Dreamcatcher papers, which dictated the pink, purple (my colour of the moment) and yellow colour combo...
...The pretty Fairy Princess image is from MilkCoffee and was a joy to colour!  Here's the colour list for all you Letraset fans :
Skin - Satin, Dusky, Sunkissed Pink
Hair - Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa, Henna, Umber
Dress and Hat - Lavender, Amethyst, Purple, Imperial Purple, Muted Pink, Tea Rose, Watermelon, Antique Pink, Ivory, Vanilla, Sunflower
Roses - Antique Pink, Ruby, Burgundy
Wings - Soft Aqua
...I decorated the inside to match the front, printed with a sentiment and the black and white line image.  I made the bunting myself, using the waste dots from my eyelet circle as faux brads and added some silver stars cut using Memory Box Precious Stars die.  Well, there we have it - I hope you like my not so little creation and that you can join in with our fun challenge this week!  Hop over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my wonderful teamies have been up to and I look forward to seeing your fab entries too!
Crafty Hugs,
