Easel does it with the Emerald Faerie Garden Design Team

Hi all in the land of blog
Today sees the next fabulous challenge at the

and the theme this time around is

Easel Cards

For my inspirational piece this time I went with a Mother's Day Card, but don't forget to hop on over to the main challenge blog to see the rest of the design teams inspirational pieces.

This is an 8 x 8 inch easel for a very special Mother and uses some lovely steam punk papers from Grimsby Crafts (the ones that were not in my candy) I matched these with the bright orange paper and some lovely golden/brown/gold ribbon wrapped around the double doily punched side pieces.  The pearls are from the Hobby House but these have been coloured with E43 to match the creation.  The flowers in the main are from Wild Orchid Crafts, white flowers, coloured with Tim Holtz distress ink "Antique Linen" the image plate has been distressed with this also, and over stamped with a lovely flourish stamp. The sentiment is by MSE and the return verse is from a lovely set again from Grimsby Crafts.

Here is a close up of the verse

and here is a close up of the Emerald Faerie Garden Image called
 available from the link on the challenge site
she has been coloured in YR's, Y's and E's copic ranges with a little clear glitter sakuro on her wings and a white gel pen for the highlights on her legs.  Hope you can see the little glitz of platinum stickles on the scrolls on the image plate too.

As always I must say thank you to all my wonderful followers and visitors who leave such kind and inspirational comments, which allow me to hop over and visit you in return

I would like to remind you all that my 800 follower candy is now running and can be entered here
