Blonds have more fun

Today's project is to support the challenge at As You Like It Challenge where the theme is to use your favourite papers. I actually have a few favourites at the moment, including some of the new pads from Maja Designs, but this card uses my oldest favourites from Papermania.

I've also been attempting something new lately, as I'm trying my hand at colouring blonds, having steered clear of them in favour of the familiar brunettes for so long!  The image I've chosen is a sweet fairy from Tiddly Inks called Fairy Fae.  Based on the image on the Tiddly Inks site, I think I may have flipped her horizontally before printing her out so that she is facing to the right.

And here's a close up of my attempts at blonds.

Card Recipe:
I've been inspired by:
  • Inky Chicks - Happy Birthday
  • Stamp & Create - Birthdays
  • Simon's Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
  • Dream Valley - Favourite colours (my 3 fave colours are pink, purple and aqua blue, and any combination of the 3; yesterday combined purple and aqua, so today is the pink and blue combo!)
Happy crafting

...blonds most certainly don't have more fun (have you not seen my post yet!!?), however, you have done a brilliant job of blond hair, in fact I am in awe of anyone that can "do" hair, as I'm rubbish at it!! Fab card and such an adorable stamp. LOVE the sparkly ribbon too!! xx

Your 'blond' colouring is fab. I have to try it sometime, because I also do 'brunettes'. Lovely card and colours. Luv, Wilma
