Fairy Grand Ma!

Happy Thursday peeps!
Here's a little card I made using a Just Inklined image!
It's such fun!

I made an easel card!
The design paper I've used is a free download by
Marisa Lerin over at Pixel Scrapper
I've distressed the edges with scissors & then an chalk inkpad.

The image I have used is Fairy Grand Ma
Isn't she just so cute? Everyone should have one! lol
I coloured her up with my Promarkers & Flexmarkers then
added some sparkle with a Sakura Clear Star pen!
I love that pen! Glitter without the fuss! lol
I cut out the image with an oval Nestie then distressed the edges
& matted her onto a scallop oval of pink paper.
I added a DP Panel where the pink paper was punched with 
a Martha Stewart Pine Needles border punch & added some pink 
spotty ribbon which is Papermania I think.
It's been in my stash since last year.

 For the base section of the easel, I mirrored the layout
but added a sentiment which I made on my pc & cut out
with a Sizzix Label die. I added a little more ribbon & a couple of buttons
Hope you like it!
