Dance in the Sun...

...and wear Wild Flowers in our Hair!

I'm posting today with the Design Team from Morgan's ArtWorld as we open the March Challenge Blog.

I've selected Morgan's Ballerina Fairy for today's card with a quote from Susan Schutz. 

I used Copic markers for coloring the image trying to capture the softness of the ballerina's gown.  I also added Wink of Stella clear to the flowing gown part to add a little glittery effect. After die cutting and selecting the background paper, I felt like I had too much white space at the bottom left.  I really wanted more of the background paper to show.  So I carefully took the same die and spaced it to take off the corner and still keep the flow of the edging.  To give it separation, I then took Copic marker BV25 and carefully inked all the edges of the colored image. Much better! 

Sometimes it's like coloring out of the lines... just because a die is rectangle or square does not mean that's the only way it can be used.
