We've got Fairy Magic..

.. to share with you all over at Some Odd Girl today. February really is for Fairies!! We've a brand new release happening over the next three days and to kick start it we've got this little cutie to share with ya..

Is she not just dreamy?! Love the shape of those wings, and those flowers in her hair are the perfect touch.. oh and those shoes? Made from leaves? Come on!! She's a beauty, alright!


I've coloured her up using my ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to match my papers from My Minds Eye. Tell ya a secret.. with all this "free from FB" time I've been having lately, I had a brain wave. I wanna try and use my stash up, like.. NOW. I hate having to trawl through my draws for stuff to use on a specific project, so for a couple hours the other day I just sat. and sorted. I picked a couple paper packs that I'm feeling right now, matched a few sheets of cardstock and raided my draws for matching embellishments. I now have two designated draws for 'stuff to use now' with the paper packs I wanna use up. I like me a plan every now and then. Here's hoping all goes well! 

I wanted to make a larger card for this girlie, so this ended up being 5.75"x5.75 which is about as big as I'd go. I also wanted to colour hair blue. As soon as I seen her, I knew it was happening. So I went with it. Yellow and blue flows well, no? I used a few die cut pinking circles, a lovely beige feather, some Studio Calico rubons, Prima flowers, a homemade clay doodad, some yummy pearl brads and liquid pearls and stuff. You know, the usual. 

The sentiment is included in the set, alongside a mini kinda.. starburst thingy. Very pretty!! I stamped the sentiment onto some more paper from My Minds Eye in Island Indigo ink from SU! 

Oh, and before I get asked.. because I always ask other peoples where they get their leaves from.. They're from a My Favorite Things die. Voila! ;)

All you gotta do to win this treasure is head over to the Some Odd Girl blog and leave a comment! That's it! :) She will be available to buy from the shop from tomorrow, along with the rest of the release if you just. can't. wait! Heh.
