Fairy Alyce in Shabby Chic

I am waaaaay out of my box with this card. As you know, I am usually a clean and simple kind of girl but I do like to experiment every now and again to see what I am capable of and I thought I would give shabby chic a try again. This is for the June challenge on the Kit and Clowder Ning site. You do have to be a member of the site but it's free and there is lots of eye candy on the site and wealth of coloring information and classes for beginners and intermediate colorists.

The image is a commission from the Stamping Chef done specially for Alyce. I colored her with copics and painted the background with some Twinkling H2Os. I used my copics to add color to a white pearl flourish to match my project. I distressed the edges of my cardstock and patterned paper and painted a little gesso on the patterned paper to tone down the color. I also painted some onto the flowers and then went along the edges with some Vintage Photo distress ink. I also added a little cheese cloth in a couple of areas with iridescent medium. I added some salmon colored pearl drops to the wings with a Viva Pearl Pen.

I have to say I am pretty pleased with how this came out since I colored the image before I even had an idea of what kind of project I had in mind or even what color paper I was going to use. I am also entering this into the Stamping Chef Anything Goes Challenge.
