Spring Bringer Fairy

I've another of Sylvia's new Wee digi designs to share with you today, this one is called the Spring Bringer Fairy, and of course I've coloured her with Copics. The papers are from the Pachella Studios new Country House digi selection in rose with Versamagic Spring Pansy and Stardust Stickles around the edge then matted with orchid pink cardstock. I've used the Sketch Saturday sketch turned upside down for my card layout and added a white lacy edge with my new Marianne die. To finish up I stamped a ticket text greeting and punched out the butterflies from the two smaller sizes of Nellie's Choice punch and emboss sets together with flowers layered up from various other punches - and a touch of bling of course!

And here she is in close up so you can see the subtle inked edge and the touch of sparkle. I've used these Copics to colour her in:
skin tones with E000, 00 & 21
hair with E50, 51 & 53
wings, clothing and flowers with RV000, 00, 02, V000, 12, BV 000, 00
green shades with YG11 & 41
shadow with B60

The Magical Monday challenge is for monochrome (not black and white) creations - my main colours are all from the magenta pink range on the colour wheel. The Digital Tuesday challenge is for pretty punches, while the Cupcake Craft challenge is for lots of layers, and I've even layered up my punched flowers and butterflies as well as the papers, and the image is 3d layered too. Then over on the Flutterby Wednesday blog there's an open theme just starting so perfect for my little Spring Bringer fairy.

I've still not caught up with everyone who has stopped by over the past few days - I am slowly getting around though, so hope to see you soon!

  17. This is amazing - such a lovely image & the monochrome magenta pinks work beautifully. I like your different sizes of layered flowers & those shaped butterflies are are beautifully effective. the little touches of psarkle (?) on the flowers of her bouquet & in her hair plus on her pantaloons are very effective.
    A real beauty.
