Blue Garden Fairy

Challenge #9 for Pile it On is to use three or more flowers. I chose the colors based on Color Throwdown's challenge to use Bordering Blue, Rose Red, and Pirouette Pink. Hopefully my colors are close enough. I chose to use the sketch on Lili of the Valley. I cut the fairy out and mounted her on light blue paper that I put a thin layer of matte accents and blue eye shadow to create her background. I cut my pink and red blocks and inked the edges in dark red. I took Making Memories paper flowers, inked them with blue ink so they weren't white anymore and attached them. Then the three that have skinny petals got a big blob of Matte Accents in the middle (the biggest one isn't quite dry yet). I add teenie tiny dots of accents for the water drops falling from the watering cann (too bad I can't get a good photo of that).

Thanks for looking and enjoy the weekend,
