Not so "clean" and simple...

Today's card was inspired by 3 challenges;

 First I need to apologise for the photo quality...
I seem to have been a little shaky this morning.
This is supposed to show how I embossed the blank card
using Sheena Douglas' "Vine" folder.
 I stamped the "Rosehip" fairy
from Crafter's Companion Fairyopolis collection
 used a heart shaped X-cut die to cut it out...
 and coloured with my promarkers.
 I kept the colour palette pretty simple and used the blender pen 
to soften areas of her dress and the rosehips .
 I couldn't leave the white card white...
so I chose an ink that matched one of the pens
 adding it sparingly around the edges and over the embossed areas
To make the "stopper" I cut 3 small hearts,
layered them to make 1 thicker heart
and coloured to match the rosehips.
I real life it doesn't look as "scruffy",
but then I 'm not a particularly 
"clean and simple" person lol
Enjoy :D xxx
*now I am feeling the urge to make a doll...
with Tim Burton in mind*
