Fairy Sparkle

This is my first card post and I’m sorry the picture isn’t the greatest but I still have work to do on my photography as well as finding somewhere that I can take them to get a clearer image.This is for the Annabelle Stamps Blog Bling sketch Challenge  100_2808
You may not be able to see it but there is sparkle from embossing on the  squares on the base paper and there are also tiny embossed sparkly dots on the scalloped paper. and I just used the glitz to give her wings that extra bit of shimmer too- Looks great IRL
This card is using one of my first stamps I ever purchased it was actually for a children's activity set but I fell in love with all the fairies.  I just love this images by Shirley Barber and although my colouring leaves a lot to be desired and I have limited supplies in this area and can only use what I have which at the moment are Whisper Strokes brushmarkers - I am hoping to improve my collection and maybe get some Copics.

Papers-DCWV -“The Endless Summer Matstack”, Hunter Studio watercolour paper, scraps of vellum
Stamps: Shirley Barber; See-D’s
Accessories: Ribbon, Spellbinders Dies- oval petite and scalloped oval petite;Zing gold glitter embossing powder; various gems; Kindy Glitz- crystals(I think);Versamark watermark ink;Whispers strokes brushmarkers.
Have a good day
