Mini Peony Easel Card

Hi all, Couldn't resist the Oh Alice Challenge this week a card 3 inches high, this one is just over 3.5 inches and just had to make another easel card. I have christened my Spellbinder set (Peony) and came up with this creation. I have used one of CJ's images 'Garden Faery' and coloured in my favourate pink combo for our Mad for Markers New Challenge Copic Colouring in Pink with a wonderful prize of three pink copics. My DT buddy Emma has a wonderful tutorial here and check out our Mad for Markers Blog daily for inspiration from my other talented DT Buddies. Don't forget Sammi from the Mad for Markers Store can cater for all your copic addictions I mean additions lol! Posting to New Zealand and Australia and don't forget the lovely Sammi will be at the Paperific Show in Melbourne on 27th-29th Aug so looking forward to meeting her.
I have used Clear Spica on her wings and Gold Spica in her hair, the flower next to the image is coloured using copics too. Kindyglitz around the edges and purple gel pen for the stitching. I've got to say she is just beautiful.
