Festive Fairy

This week on Cute Card Thursday we are looking for a touch of sparkle on your crafty creation - perfect for Christmas cards I thought!  I've inked up the LOTV festive fairy with brown Momento then coloured with my Copics, although I'm still having problems with the colours fading now that I'm working in the conservatory.  I'll drop Copic EU an email for some advice .. .. and if you are in the UK you can now get Copics on the tv shopping channel Create and Craft - fabulous demonstrations yesterday but I can't remember the lady's name, and I need to find her blog - do you know it?

Anyhow, I added a little more than a touch of sparkle to my card, well it is for Christmas and a girly Christmas at that.  I've inked the edges of the card, digi paper scrap and my image with spring pansy Versamagic chalk ink then added the stardust Stickles.  I punched the snowflake border and stickled that too, along with a few little extra snowflakes.

Here she is in close up, with lots of sparkle and blobs of snow created with white opal Perfect Pearls.  The background is a mix of B0000, B000 and spring pansy chalk ink. The pinks are RV63, 66 & 69 and I used BG70 and C1 for her coat and booties, but I can't remember the rest as I tend to pick pens and change my mind, leave them on the desk, over colour shades .. .. I end up with 50+ pens scattered all over the place!

The Oldie but a Goodie challenge is for things with wings as well as old stuff, well just about everything is old on this card as I've not been able to get very much new crafty stuff since moving here.  The Incy Wincy Designs blog is looking for weather related projects - there's a snow flurry on my winter card that should fit the theme.

I'll be back tomorrow to share my teddy bear card for the Lili's Little Fairies blog but then there's nothing so I had best have a crafty day today!
