La Fee Verte by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff

Another Scrapbook Stamp Society DT card from me, as I have loads in the pipeline so to speak, lol. This one's a beautiful Image by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff La Fee Verte, though I have no idea what that exactly means in french, verte is definitely green, Fee I suppose is a Fairy, but I'm not sure lol, but anyway, it is a stunner, and a lovely complex design, that you can loose yourself in for quite some time.
Which is exactly what I did! This card has been in the making for about 2 weeks, not because it was hard to do, but I did take my time over it as there were things I wanted to try, and then of course I lost my hard drive, so now I have a crate of disks sitting here waiting to be loaded onto a new hard drive, I lost 850GB in the crash, so its going to be a long time getting everything back on!!
But back to the card.
Base card I made 8x8" in Centura pearl.
Butterflies were cut on the Happy Cut, using the Butterfly die that came with the machine, from a mega pack of 12x12" papers by K&Co,
Base paper is a design by William Morris, Rabbit something. I cant tell you which one  it is as the name is on the back of the paper, lol.
Base Matt is a Cloud design by Kanban.
Dark green paper as a top Matt.
Digi Stamp by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.

I duplicated the fairy figure in My Craft Studio, as I knew exactly what I was intending to do with it.
But this design was a bit of a step into unknown territory for me..........my thinking: Butterflies have brown or black bodies.........so the body for the wings ..........lets try a darker skin tone than I am used to........
I dont know if I got the skin tone right, I think I have. But I'm not definite, as its the first time, I have tried it.
The main base image and the duplicated fairy were all coloured with the same promarkers...
Pine, Forest Green, Lime green, Fresh Meadow, Indgio Blue, Sky Blue, Cobalt Blue, Arctic Blue, Amythyst, Orchid, Fuchia Pink, Dusky Rose, Rose Pink, Antique Pink, Ruby, Sunkissed Pink, Pale Pink, Sandstone, Cocoa, Cinamon, Chestnut.
Then I used a silver Sakura Pen for the decoration on the dress, and used versamark and clear embossing powder to glaze the fairy. I fixed her on top of the original with some clear glue. I deliberately left some of the edge of her dress trailing outside the main Image, to draw the veiwer in.
I hope you like it, xxx
