Fairy Tales

My first news is that my stipple brush has been found by the culprit who stole it - namely one of our cats. It has been missing since Thanksgiving. He proudly brought it down to my dd's room.  Cats! Speaking of cats the other one is trying to help me with this post. On to the card. I saw this image today on Suzanne Dean's blog and just had to have it because my dd loves fairies and reading.  It can be purchased from Greeting Farm or there is a digi stamp with shading on it on Elizabeth Dulemba blog here. The stamp doesn't have the shading on it but I couldn't wait that long to use it. I really didn't mind the shading. She does have lots of digi's without the shading.
 The image is colored with copics as are the little pearls in the corner which you can get here at Susana's store. The wings have stickles applied to them. The dp is romano by basic grey. The flowers are from my stash with a purple nail head that are also below the bow.  I distressed the paper just a bit.  Hope you enjoy.
This card was done as a challenge on copic creations here.
This is the cat that stole the brush.

This is the cat that helps me type.

Wonderful card Peggy! :) I love your coloring and the colors. :)

Cats can drive you mad, but I know I wouldn't trade mine for anything. You just never know what they are going to do. LOL :)

Take care ~ Smiles ~ Brandi

Love how you colored the fairy - she's adorable.
Your kittens (there is always a kitten inside every cat) are adorable too - my old one used to steal my pencils and even bring them back expecting me to throw them for her (at over 19 years old she is a bit lazy these days...).
I got a chuckle seeing your calico as I did another challenge this week and colored the cat alot like him....
