Autumnal Earth Fairy

This little beauty is Earth Fairy freebie from Pollycraft and she is really versatile. I have previously used her coloured blue and now she has her autumnal colours on. Following Sketch Saturday No 124, I coloured her with Promarkers, inked the edge with Distress Ink and layered her onto pearlised brown, copper and autumnal coloured paper from MCS. The sentiment is computer generated and the flowers I made using a combination of all three papers punched and stuck together in three layers. I am rather pleased with the result considering I am not feeling 100% today - I had a painkilling injection for my neck at The Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead yesterday and I have now lost my voice (much to my family's delight!!) and am exhausted as I didn't get much sleep last night. I am hoping to upload a very personal project I have been working on tomorrow so please come back to see if I have managed to.
This is going into the following challenges:~
Earth Fairy digi image from Pollycraft coloured with Promarkers:
Skin: Ivory & Blush;
Hair: Cinnamon & Sandstone;
Dress & Boots: Honeycomb, Coral, Pumpkin, Spice & Lilac;
Image edged in Cool Grey 1 and Tim Hotz Distress Ink in Tattered Rose;
Pearlised brown and coral card from The Papermill Shop;
Autumnal patterned paper from My Craft Studio The Collectors Edition;
Flowers hand made by moi and
Sentiment Computer Generated matted and layered onto same paper as previous.
