Fantasy # Creative Card Crew

Hi we have a new challenge at Creative Card Crew

This week it's anything to do with


Our generous sponsor for this challenge is  Gingerloft

My DT card

This was certainly a challenge well out of my comfort zone, but I have to admit I enjoyed it even though I messed up the first one.. I spent all afternoon colouring and when I did the background I left a slight line under the horses neck. Did I leave it... no couldn't do that, I tried to colour it and got a big deep purple spot arrrrgh!!! I thought as it was ink I could use water to lighten it NO!! that just pilled the paper.
So I had to start again. At least I know for next time what not to do.

This image from Gingerloft is 'Fairy on Unicorn'

The close up is nearer to the actual colours it took quite a few goes to get a good photo.
Copics used BV000 BV01 RV32 RV34 G20 E000 E00 E11 R20 B12 C1 3 5
B60 plus blender
Distress ink Dusty Concord and Versafine imperial purple and smokey grey
Leaf and sentiment stamps from Lavinia Stamps
I also added Spica clear twinkles but it's not showing on the photo.
I didn't want to add anything else, the image matt is 14 1/2cm sq. I made it larger because it's so detailed  any smaller would have been even more difficult to colour.
