Things with Wings Challenge - Fitztown

This is my second card for the "things with wings" challenge at Fitztown.

For my card I used a digital image of Morgan Fitzsimons from the FAE Collection at Fitztown by Morgan Fitzsimons.   I love the fairy's little pointed ears. The dress and wings were paper pieced out of vellum paper.  The wings were cut out of silver vellum and the dress in a pattern vellum. I think the addition of the vellum gives the card a more fairy like feel.

 The fairy was coloured with Copic markers and glitter pens and the background was a stencil and PanPastel.  To complete the card I added some fabric flowers, pearls, blig and a sentiment. 

There is still time left to enter this challenge.  Hope you will show us your art work.
