Silver Fairy

I hope Mr Blogger is on form today and my beautiful silver fairy appears .. .. can you see her?! This is another of Sylvia's new Wee digi designs availble at Cuddly Buddly and although she could be used for a winter festive creation, I think she would work for any time of year. I've coloured with my Copics and added Spring Pansy Versamagic chalk ink to the background after I'd finished with my Copic shadows. I've also stamped a lacy snowflake with Sea Breeze Versamagic chalk ink but it's not showing up, nor is the vast amount of Stardust Stickles I've used on the card - all of her wings, the pale aqua flowers and the diecut leaves as well as the edge of the image and pp are stickled. I must get some bigger square cards - this is 14cm and hasn't given me a lot of room for adding any extra layers but I have added lots of flowers and that little bit of veiling that just happened to fall on my desk!

these are the Copic colours I used to colour my fairy:
skintones - E000, 00, 21, R00
hair - E71, 74, 77, 79
leg and arm warmers - E40, 42, 43
violets - BV0000, 00, 11, V000, 01, 12, V91, 95
aqua shadow - B0000, 000, 00

Although I'm away today I'm going to link up to these challenges when I get home again:
Allsorts challenge for wings, Paper Sundaes for shabby chic, and Flutterby Wednesday with an open theme to include a fairy or butterfly on your creation. I'll be back later to link up and catch up with what's been hapening in blog land.
