Pretty in Pearls - new challenge at Diva's by Design...

Hello all,

Great news!  I have the pleasure to share the news that I am joining the team at Diva's by Design and I would like to share my first DT project for their new challenge - Pretty Pearls :)

The main image is Pixie Dust from Saturated Canary, an image I was lucky enough to get through Kit and Clowder.
She was coloured with my Graph'it Marker Pens in the following colour tones:
Skin: 4125, 4115, 4155, 4170, 4145, 4135
Hair: 7140, 7150, 7119, 1150
Wings and Pants; 7119, 7220, 7140, 1150, 8220, 9103
Top; 5125, 5130, 6110, 6130
Sack; 9100, 9102, 9103

I added dots of white perfect pearls to the background multi coloured dots to add a little Pixie magic!

She was matted on white card to lift the image from the backing.

For the rest of the project - layered backing papers in pale pinks from my stash; layered on white card stock; Xccut florish die cuts; various pink flowers from my stash and an old pearl necklace that had broken and made its way into my stash!!!
For the eagle eyed, you will see the heart sentiment saying 'Abbi' with the bouquet of flowers on the right!  Abbi is one of my twins and this design was her 15th Birthday card this week :)

I am really looking forward to seeing all your designs for the Diva's by Design Challenge and have fun with Pretty Pearls!
