Allsorts Fancy folds

This week at Allsorts its my turn to choose the theme and I have chosen
Fancy Folds
I'd like to see different folds in your card base rather than the normal folded in half card...



I made my crad blank by cutting the front half off a 6x6 and the middle card is a 4.5x4.5 card which has been put in the opposite way round the fairy image is quite new havn't managed to ink her up till now and I went for water colour pencils for a change this time and I'm really pleased with how the colouring turned out I highlighted her with a purple sakura stardust pen some I watered down to brush over her wings to give them a gentle shimmer...
here is a blurry close up (which quite defeats the object)...lol

The papers are from a free My Minds Eye pack I got in a mag which are from the Quite contrary collection and they are soooooo lovely!!!
A few gems and flowers from my stash and a bit of sakura stardust doodling at the corners to finish off....

I hope you can join us at Allsortsthis week
