Please note: I WOULD like to be included for the prize draw for this challenge - usually I opt out of the prize draws because I don't use stamps or traditional crafting items, but I do love digital collage sheets, so please include me for this one.
This is what I've created for the current challenge at the Digitally Sweet blog, and I have a bit of explaining to do. The challenge is a photo inspiration challenge, and the photo is in shades of purple and turquoise blue, with fairies and swirls and I love all of those things, so it seemed like a no-brainer for me to play along. But when I started looking through my fairies, this one kept calling out to me. She absolutely refused to be colour-changed into a purple fairy, and insisted on staying this shade of orangey-red. Which isn't a colour I particularly like. And then I realised that I was going to make the background for her in the same colour as well. At the very beginning, I planned on making this a birthday creation and using polka dots as well, so that I could enter two other challenges, but she wasn't having any of that either. So, after I completely gave up on my original ideas and allowed her to lead me where she wanted to go, I ended up with this piece, which I'm really quite pleased with.
