Faery Ink Facebook Contest - Give your project some lift

The Faery Ink monthly Facebook Contest has started and the theme this month is "Heights: Give your project some lift."  i.e. create a 3D effect.

For my DT project I have used Cheerful Mushroom Fae.  I love mushroom and toadstool images and this image lends itself perfectly to decoupage which I have done to her skirt and the head of the mushroom.  
Amanda's description of this image is "This cheerful little faery enjoys a bright sunny day in the shade of a mushroom."  So I have sat her beside a pool where she can take a cool dip if the sun gets too much and dressed her in bright colours.

I have coloured Cheerful Mushroom Fae using Graph it markers and 

I have used a 5x5 scalloped edged card which I embossed with Cuttlebug Bird Call and Kirstie Allsopp Swiggles embossing folders.  I have used Faded Jeans and Forest Moss distress inks over the embossing. 

I have used a grey marker underneath the  colours on the second image to give the appearance of a reflection.   The flower and calendar are from my stash.
I hope you will join in with the Facebook Contest.  You can of course buy your Faery Ink images from the shop.

Creative Blessings.  x
