It is time for another Corrosive Challenges challenge.  This fortnight, the challenge is "Put a Pin in it".  We are sponsored by A&T Digi Designs. I am using 3 of A&T's amazing fairies.  We were given a choice but I couldn't decide between them so I used them all for this canvas.

My inspiration for this was my great niece Zoe and a layout done by Diane from ArtOfCraftNZ.  She did a beautiful layout of a meadow with her granddaughter in it.  My intent was to make Zoe a flower in the middle of this fairyland but it didn't work out so I went with butterflies instead.

I started with a 12x12 canvas and a piece of light blue paper.  I used so many things on this.  Here is a list:

K&Co Butterflies
Crystal stick pins (the butterflies antennae)
Tons of acrylic paint
Several Distress inks
Several Adirondak inks
Several different embossing powders including Frantage & Distress
Flower stamps (can't remember the brand)
Glass bead gel
Glue dots
Crystal lacquer
Sanding block
Fiskars grass punch

I wanted this to be fun and I hope I achieved that.  I am just sorry little Zoe never made it on the page.  I had too much fun coloring the fairies with Copics.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
