Happy New Year - The Crafty Addicts Challenge 6

Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Bloggers, first of all I would like to thank you all for joining me throughout last year, and wish you a very 'Happy and Prosperous 2016'. May all your hopes and dreams come true!! I feel this is going to be a very good year for us all!!! :)

So on to why I'm here, I'm sharing with you my DT project for the first challenge of the New Year for the Crafty Addicts. Our theme for this fortnight is Celebrations and/or Anything Goes. Our sponsors are Lacy Sunshine, and Morgan's Artworld. I chose the latter, and their image I've used is the fab Goth Fairy 2. I actually made this with my Mother-in-law in mind (her favourite colours and with flowers) as it was her birthday a couple of days ago, and I can say that she was so delighted with it!! 
My Project

Products Used
Morgan's Artworld - Image Goth Fairy 2
Promarkers - Almond, Blush, Sandstone, Pastel Blue, Grey Green, Tea Green Antique Pink and Cerise
Derwent Coloursoft Pencils - Blue and Dove Grey
Sakura Gelly Roll Pen - Clear Star
Spellbinders - Grand Decorative Oval Dies
Joycraft - Decorative Stand Die
Tonic - Latice Arch Die
Joanna Sheen 'Signature'- Ivy Flourish Die
Bazzil Basics - Blue Backing Card
Creata - Black Mirror card
Docrafts - Country Companions Backing Paper
Flowers, Resin Flowers, Brad and Pearl Gems from my stash

I, first of all, cut out the card's main shape using Creata mirror card; I then layered together with the Country Companions backing paper. To add strength to the card, I added a piece of oval card at the back. I then cut out the stand using the same mirror card, and added the die cut lattice arch. After printing, colouring, and cutting out the image, I positioned this half onto to the arch. I finished off by adding the die cut flourishes, flowers, brad, and pearl gems. Here are some close ups ..
