Wow - LIM and it's only Tuesday!!

Do you know - I've decided the most difficult part of creating a LIM card is choosing the subject matter. This is probably because the image stands alone, there's no distracting from in with embellishments etc, although I do try never to let embellishments take pride of place or overpower the image in anyway.


I use this image called 'Dreamer' with the sentiment 'Dreams do come True' - I've had it for ages and shame on me I can't for the life in me remember who it's by - it's part of a fairy set and naughty me hasn't labelled it in my computer. If anyone can tell me I would be grateful. 
The whole card started off in kraft cardstock but I had another ooops.
Last week my cat added pawprints to my creation - this week I knocked a bottle of Sansodor all over which of course caught the edge of the card, so again I retrieved the OK part and mounted in on some blue cs.
My little 'dreamer' is coloured in my mixture of Prisma's and Coloursoft pencils and that's about it really!! I have the urge to do another card this week, again - time permitting!!


Hope you're all having a great week,
Photobucket

Oh simply gorgeous, Rica! Masterly colouring, she looks so pretty in the colours you used. Love the white around her too, makes the delicate colours really pop. The sentiment is perfect too, the fonts in it just add to the fairy-like feel. I am so envious of you for producing this. CoB
