hey guys
new challenge at 
Shaped cards

i went for a shaped hanging card, just to be a little different
the image is from Sweet pea stamps and is called 
Hanging Fairy lights

isn't she just so pretty.

i coloured her in spectrum noir pens and then pencils over the top to ad the rich colour and depth, i have also added glitter highlights to her dress and wings but it just doesn't show in my pic (so annoying), the background is done with watercolour crayons , just scribbled on  then washed over with a wet brush , it gives a lovely soft effect.
next she was stuck onto a pretty paper , then fussy cut, so the reverse is all ready for your message

its a nice change from a standard card and if the recipient wants they can use as a wall hanging .

now its your turn to have a go at a shaped card, there are lots to chose from
