SEA SHELL FAIRY

Hi all, I am back with my second posting of the day, very unusual for me but I wanted to make sure I made it to enter a few challenges.
I have used a rubber stamp that I have had for years, only ever used it once before so thought it was about time to let her fly free with some ink and colour.  I cannot remember what she is really called or the company that I got her from all I know is that is came from USA.  
In my early years of blogging I used to enter a challenge that featured this companies stamps, I won quite a few of the challenges and won other fairy stamps so I feel that I should give them life.
I coloured this image with Graph It Markers, the papers are a mix of LOTV and Elusive Images, now a different name, but the papers I have also had for some years.
everything has been mounted onto black card, I punched some butterflies and added some blue beads in a bottle.
I wanted to keep this relatively simple to give centre stage to both image and papers.
I don't think I did justice to the image but I can always try again.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

How gorgeously colored, Lorraine! I have that image as well. It came as unmounted rubber from a one-woman owner who presses her own rubber stamps here in Florida. I don't recall the name of the business but her name was Heather. My cards never looked this amazing. Beautiful! Hugs, de

Just stunning Lorraine and the colouring perfection. My gran always said "blue and green should never be seen" but I have always begged to differ as I always love the colour palette.
