New Beginnings

Happy New Year!

Welcome to the last Crafters Cafe Challenge of 2014

The theme for this challenge is 'New' and our sponsor is 'Fitztown' and I chose the image 'Fae 10' & this is what I did with her:

I used the following Spectrum Noirs:

GB1, GB8, GB10
FS2, FS5, FS6, FS9, TN1
PL1, PL2, PL5
BT1, BT2, BT4, BT5, TN7
CG1, CG2, DG3
CT1, CT3, CT4, GB5, OR1

I've printed extra butterflies and decoupaged them onto the image, I've also added gold gems & clear gems which I coloured with TN7 to match the body of the butterfly.

It's such a beautiful image I decided to make a frame, to which I've added more butterflies, flowers & gems and matching papers.
