Our July Anything Goes challenge is now underway and 
our sponsor for this challenge is

Aurora Wings

You know how sometimes you look at 'something' and you think - I know exactly what I want to do with that. Well thats how I felt about this gorgeous Whimsical Fuchsia Sprite. I just couldn't wait to get started

I printed the image and started colouring it with pencils, pan pastels, promakers and my water colour markers. Having coloured it half in - I thought it would be just perfect for layering up. I coloured each layer and shaped it before adding  

Then using my Tonic Punch and Stamp Set - I created  my fuschia flowers in papers that matched with the tones used in the sprite.

Once all the elements had been collected and prepared : Image, flowers, swirls, background and frame- it was just a case of positioning them and sticking them down ( I used both glue and double sided tape).
When it had dried and I was sure they were competely secure - I placed them into the frame
