Summer Fairy at Night - Simply Betty Fan Challenge

Hi Everyone

A quick post today with a card I made using the free image 'Summer Fairy' from Simply Betty Stamps - details on how you can get this image are here.  The challenge is to create your own background behind her.  I used some Dylusions Inks (Black Marble, Crushed Grape and Vibrant Turquoise) from Dyan Reaveley to create this background.  To give it a little more interest I used a flower stamp around the edges and Dyan's bleach out technique to colour them.

Here is a closer look at the background and edges.

I didn't want to 'fussy' around with any more details, the photo doesn't show it very well but the flowers are highlighted with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen in 'Clear Star' to give it a little extra sparkle.  the image is coloured with ProMakers and the wings finished off with a little 'Star Dust Stickles'.

To me she looks almost like a firefly in the night sky.  Thanks for taking a peek at my project today.
