My Inky Impressions Mingle card for Angela

Hi all, first apologies for the pictures, had to take tonight as I am working tomorrow and wanted to post this to Angela, whom I met through Yahoo Inky Impressions Group, you should check it out there are some wonderful creations. It has been a while since I have inked my Inky Girls up (a little distracted with Digital Images). This is Fairy Lili (one of my favourates), I have used touchmarkers to colour, kindyglitz on her wings and hair ties and special effects on her eyes. I have stitched in various places but was not brave enough to stitch the image on, maybe another time. Have pleated (I think) then stitched the ribbon down the middle.
Also distressed the edges and sponged around the image

This is the inside, stamps from Stampin Up Sets

All card stock, dsp and ribbon - Stampin Up

The crochet flower was made by Alison, picked these up from Stamp Camp, must find out how to make them, bought the crochet hook and thread, a challenge for another day.
