Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a great week and you have some fun plans for the upcoming weekend!  It's supposed to rain here all weekend so I guess that will give me some extra time in the craft room.  Hope so!  Anyway, I am here now with my DT post for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz.  The theme this week is " fantasy/fairies".  You can interpret this as you'd like, but your project must have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand).

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Pear Pizzazz and the patterned paper is from the Prima Fairy Flora 6x6 pad.  The beautiful image is Wisteria Fae with Damselfly Wings from AuroraWings.  You can find her in Mitzi's Etsy shop here.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added a bit of Icicle Stickles for a little sparkle.  A double-loop bow with a rhinestone brad, a iridescent green rhinestone flourish and a few Wild Orchid Crafts roses finished my card. 

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
 

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the gorgeous fairy cards from my teammies, Dawn, Linda, Penny and Kathi.  We hope you will play along! The March challenges are being sponsored by Elisabeth Bell and the prize is two beautiful images from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  You can see which ones in the challenge post.
