Lavender & Lace

Good afternoon my dears,  It's a miserable day here, cold, very grey and bucketing with rain.  I've been trying to get a card made for Lili's Little Fairies for the past couple of weeks and have always run out of time.   Not this time though!!!  I've used this sweet pre-coloured image and made some amendments to her.

I went over the skin tones with some blush and baby pink using my pro markers.  I then added a little sheer ribbon to her hat and added a  lilac rose.  I also cut into her skirt and added the same ribbon underneath to give her a petticoat.  

Glossy Accents on her shoes, teacup and the cake stand, with added glitter for good measure on her dress and iced cakes. A full recipe for my card is below this post.

I hope the weather is much better for you all wherever you are.
