Faerie Marci in the Garden

Hi all, hope you are all keeping well, another busy week here and another scheduled post.
For my inspiration this week over at the Mad for Markers Store Blog I have made this one layer card using this beautiful image Faerie Marci, from LaLa Land Crafts and is available from the M4M Store here.  I have wanted to try and make it look like she is fluttering around in the garden, I originally wanted to colour a little pond but a little to ambitious for me lol!  Maybe in a year or two lol!

Two closer looks to show the added spica, couldn't show it all with one photo lol!

This one shows the her tight, shoes and some of her wings better

Copics and Spicas used
Grass and Flowers - YG03, 05, 06,  07, 09, 11, BV04, Y19, Spicas Lemon & Lavender
Sky - C00, C1, B000, B00
