all it takes is a little fairy dust

good morning everyone
Yay it's bank holiday weekend here in the UK.
I'm sharing a new card today using one of my newly acquired whimsy stamps,
and my colour selection for the image is from this months 
 kit and clowder's pencil class.
my card:


this class shows you how to colour a multi coloured dress and superb wings




and I have to add I am just over halfway colouring molly harrison's image from this months class (it is rather a large image for me 7x5).

my progress so far:


i have to say i have really enjoyed colouring both of them because i absolutely love fairies.
hopefully i can get this image completed soon.

i have added a link above should you want to know more about kit and clowder colouring classes.
