Anything Goes- Things with wings!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend and, if you're in the UK, that you didn't get blown away or totally soaked!! 

Today's challenge over at Anything Goes is "Things with wings"! What can you think of....? fairies, angels, butterflies, aeroplanes, insects, birds......mmmmm. I decided to continue with making my stash of Christmas cards and have gone for a fairy!

So I used this stunning image called Winter Fairy Talva by Mo Manning. I coloured with copics and some shading with watercolour pencils and added some highlights with Crystal Stickles. The papers are  Nordic Holiday by Basic Grey (you can purchase your Basic Grey pads from The Craft Den!) The sentiment is by Waltzing Mouse from the Compliments of the Season set. Snowflake border is by Memory Box.

I'd like to enter this into:
Creative Mondays- anything goes
Crafty Catz- anything goes
Fussy and Fancy- punches and dies
Winter Wonderland- here come the girls!
ABC Christmas Challenge- hardware (nailheads)

Close up of Talva in all her fairy-gloriousness!!

Do click on the image to see colouring even closer! Why not come along and join us at Anything Goes this week, it's such a great theme and covers so many occasions so I'm sure you can think of something!! The DT samples this week are just stunning!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Mo Manning, Waltzing Mouse); Papers (Basic Grey); Assorted cardstock; Copics; Watercolour pencils; Snowflake border die (Memory Box); Snowflake punch (Woodware); Crystal Stickles; Nailheads (Josy Rose)
