Make It Colorful "Blades of Grass" Challenge

Hi everyone, today Ia m a guest over at Make it Colorful .  I was so excited to purchase this new fairy images and the new scene digi's.  I love them.  I knew I wanted to use as much of the fairies as I could and in turn I would have to create something big so I would be able to color them and still be able to show all their details.
This weeks challenge is to "Create Blades of Grass".
I create this beautiful 12x12 Wall Hanger for my youngest daughter Jazmine.  She loves it and can't wait for me to hang it on her all.

Here are the Make it Crafty digital images I used to create this scene. All images are from the New Fairy and Elven Collection and the Fairy Garden Collection.

I used a 12x12 Shadowbox that I painted off white.  I added some DCWV pattern paper to the inside of the box, trim it with ribbon, added some butterflies in each opposite corner that I covered in Martha Stewart glitter because the color of the butterflies as too dark.  I needed to lighten them up some.  I added some floral craft glitter twigs, some ice looking twigs
I adhered the image with foam tape and covered it to make a frame with a big  Technique Tuesday Chipboard Frame, that I painted  and sponged Tattered Angels Glimmer mist on in Teal and then covered with clear glitter glue and added some Martha Stewart think glittery snow flecks.
And the last thing.. was some Webster Pages round aqua glitter flake stones.
I colored the whole image with copics and a lot of them. 
I created my grass blades with different green colored copics.

Go HERE to check out what the DT created with this challenge.
Thanks for the chance to play along with the Make it Colorful girls. I had so much fun.

Thanks for stopping by.
