Fairy Wishes

Happy Wednesday!  Half way through the work week - YAY!  Today's card features some Lawn Fawn Fairies for the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge this week.
Here is the sketch that was posted:

This is one of those cards that is difficult to photograph but looks really pretty in person.  The fairies are colored with Copic markers except for their wings.  On the wings I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pens.  These are similar to Wink of Stella except they come in a lot more colors and they blend together easily.  Very fun to use.  After coloring (and getting glitter on my hands, a sure sign of a good sparkle marker) I used the clear Sparkle pen to add even more glimmer.

The background was watercolored with Soft Sky ink and I die cut the clouds.  Lawn Fawn has a really nice set of stitched line dies that I used to give the fairies their "trails".
The sentiment is  heat embossed in a Silver Pearl embossing powder.  It is very subtle but quite lovely.  After I embossed I did some additional watercoloring so it would stand out a bit more.

The last thing I added were the sequins.

There is something very creative about coloring and designing with mythical creatures (fairies, mermaids, dragons, etc.) - you can color and design however your imagination allows.  These aren't far off the mark from actual people, but I could easily have made them purple or blue.  Really fun!

  4. Oh this is beautiful! Love the soft color in the background! Such a clever take on the sketch! I'm impressed with your coloring of such tiny images - I have the hardest time getting depth in small spaces.
