Wind Fairy

Time for another challenge over at

Challenge 84
Anything Goes with an optional TWIST .... Over the rainbow

{create something that speaks from your heart and soul and screams you with the images you use

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

Ike draws the most beautiful women and here is another gorgeous one called 'Wind Fairy'.  She is so beautiful I wanted her to fill most of my card space lol and then add a simple cloud background.  The Wind Fairy was coloured with Promarkers and Polychroms and the background was created with Pan Pastels.  The rainbow was printed on acetate so the image would shine through.

My Mum is getting pretty old and struggling with Alzheimer's now so each week I make a card which I can send to her.  She can't cope with long letters anymore as as she and I are separated by many miles a card landing on her doorstep each week brightens her moment a wee bit.  So this card is a bit sentimental too, one day she will no be here on earth as the Wind Fairy is how I see my Mum in her next life.  As I don't know exactly where in the universe the next life it I chose to represent it with the sky background and yes, the rainbow, this represents that one day we will meet again, that goodbye on this earth is not the end, just the closing of a door in this dimension.  While Mum and I are together on earth she has, may a time, coloured my day with her unending love, her passion for nature, her belief in living by her good values and her respect for all around her.  She is and always will be a shining example of how one should live their lives and I love her so dearly, truly honoured to have her as my Mum.  I hope this card will make her smile when she receives it by snail mail :)
