........and I dont mean the cabbages........ (bleugh!) ;) lol.
Now, I dont usually go for colouring my images so heavy or vivid, but they say fortune favours the brave, so last night I decided to just 'go for it'.
Lots of challenges this week want to see green and I struggled to find decent DP for a base. In the end I resorted to raiding my xmas stash and felt this gorgeous fairy image from Lili of the Valley really needed to be quite bold to stand a chance against these.
I followed Cazza's sketch over on Sketch Saturday (I tried, I really did) and used lots of punches and die-cut layers to give it depth. I used a Nellie Snellen circle die as it has great loops and I wound the flowers and ivy leaves through, attaching beads on the stems to create a floral wreath. The papers and ribbon are HOTP christmas, flowers, leaves and lucky clover charm from very old stash.
