Polkadoodles Challenge 43

Good morning,

It's time for the Polka Doodles week 43 challenge. This week's challenge has been set by Claire and she has chosen the theme of:-

A magical world - an element of magic.... fairies/wizard/dragon/unicorn


I chose this beautiful backing paper from the Polka Doodles Pretty Sweet Mini Collection. I wouldn't normally choose a colour like this, especially for fairies, but it called out to me and I love it! I coloured the Lili of theValley fairy with Letraset Alcohol Markers using yellows, browns and greens. I've added some sparkle with Gold Glamour Dust and added some machine stitching around the edge. The sweet sentiment is also from the Pretty Sweet Mini Collection

I do hope you can join us!

Hugs and best wishes, Clare xx
