Sweet Peas Challenge - All that Glistens is Gold! and Crafts and Me Challenge

Happy Good Friday to you all. I hope you all have a lovely Easter Weekend planned. I am just grateful that there is no school run for the forthcoming weeks!!

Well, as you know i just adore the wonderful Sweet Pea images, and the new Challenge Blog. This is my entry into this weeks challenge - All That Glistens Is Gold!! I love this particular image and have enjoyed colouring it with a limited gold colour pallet.

Coloured with my pro-markers and my brilliance gold ink pad. Layered onto different shades of gold and textured card.

The wings have been stickled and glossy accented, and i have stuck then onto 3 d pads to add extra dimension.

Can't wait for the next Sweet Pea Challenge, bring on more Sweet Pea gorgeousness!!
Enjoy your day, we have to clear out the garden and garage. We had a huge skip delivered yesterday im sure it wont take long to fill it. Have also promised to make cornflake cakes with Jasmine today, so can't see ill have much time for my crafting.
Also entering it into the Crafts and Me Challenge - Fairies and Wings
Big hugs to you all Linda x
