Fitztown April Challenge

Its time for another challenge over at Fitztown Challenge Blog and the theme this month is Anything Goes with the optional twist of using flowers and leaves. I thought Fitztown's Fae 3 would be the perfect image for this.
Fitztown Fae 3

Fitztown Fae 3

Card Tip:

To add interest to this card, I have printed it twice, one on xpress it card stock and one on plain white card stock. I coloured the whole image with copics on the xpress it, I then fussy cut selected flowers out of the image, coloured with corresponding copics, as well as using the last colour to go around the edges of the flowers, this will hide any uneven cutting.
