Fairy and dragon Birthday card (Faery Ink Designs image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I've just changed my blog up a bit so it's easier for you to see the challenge details below, they were red but now I've managed to change them to white.

I printed this Faery Ink Designs image in grey tone rather than black to create a no lines image. I'm still very much practicing this technique so please don't look too closely hehe. After I'd coloured the image I realised I had a couple of colour smudges in the background so that's when I decided to add the blue liquid pearls to hide them and I think it worked really well. As they say, there's no errors with crafting :)

I used some gorgeous Flourish with a Bling - the Chloe pearl flourish and Elise flower. We only need 3 more followers on our blog before we giveaway a lovely prize pack, click HERE to see the prize pack and follow our blog. We also have a DT call.
