Tiddly Inks Challenge 43 - Picture Me

Over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog there has been a slight change to the challenge policy.  Only projects using Tiddly Inks images can be entered for the challenge.  It's not a problem for me as I have so many tiddlies to choose from.  And so onto this weeks challenge.  The challenge is two fold this week.  The first element of the challenge is to produce a shaped card.  You cannot use an electronic die cutter, such as the cricut but you can use manual die cutters such as the big shot teamed with say a nestabilite die.
You also have to use the photo below as inspiration for your card.

This is the second card I have made for this challenge.  The first one I can't use for this challenge as I didn't use the image as inspiration, but I will enter it into another challenge later today.
I don't own an dies to use in my cuttlebug as I sold them all to help pay for my cricut so this challenge was a bit more challenging than normal.
As a circle was out of the question (it wouldn't look like a circle when I'd finished cutting it) I chose to use a shape with straight sides so I could use my trimmer.  I chose the above shape as it was simple to cut and also simple to produce a smaller shape for my patterned paper.
The image I chose to go with is called Fairy Fae, I thought she was the perfect image to go with my chosen colour scheme. I coloured her with copics and used sakura clear stardust pen in her flowers and glamour dust for the details on her wings.  I then doodled a border around my fairy Fae.
The backing paper was made by blending my spun sugar, weathered wood and dusty concord distress inks.
I then sprayed it with my home made pink mica spray, to give it the fairy sparkle it needed.  I them went around the edges with a simple stamp in black memento ink.
The lace is from stash and the card is finished as usual with card candy.
Thannks for dropping by and leaving me some lovely comments, I really appreciate them all,
