Dancing Fairy

Hello again!  I'm back with a super quick post to share a fun card I was working on and managed to finish up.  This one was just for fun and coloring practice, something I don't get to do very often.

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned paper is from the Prima Fairy Flora 6x6 pad.  The whimsical image is Dancing Floral Fairy from Make it Crafty.  She's one of a series of three pretty floral fairies with some extras, too.  I printed her on MiC blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I've been trying to practice my creases and folds at every opportunity.  I struggled with this one a little, but I am going to go back over some of the lessons in Zoe's Techniques Behind My Creases and Folds eBook and see if I can refine this a bit for next time. I added a little white dot detail to her hair with my Sharpie White Paint Pen.  I also added a dotted background in pale pastels with my Copics. A few gems and some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers finished my simple card. 

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: RV10, R81, R83, R85, R89
Greens: YG01, YG03, YG25, YG17, YG67, G94
Wings: BG10, BG45, BG53, BG57

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are from the Prima Madeline 6x6 pad. The beautiful image is Braid in My Hair from A Day for Daisies.  I colored it with my Copics and added some White Pearl Pen accents to her hair.  A few pearls and a single flower from my stash finished my card.

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park A Perfect Summer 6x6 pad.  I colored up the sweet image with my Copics.  I added some Aqua Stickles to the little fish and then I added Glossy Accents all over the bowl.  Some ribbon, a diecut button and a sparkly 3-D fish sticker finished my card.

Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have something fun planned for the weekend!  After several gorgeous days here, it is now supposed to rain for the next 4-5 days!  So much for outdoor activities this weekend!  I guess that means more time for crafting!  Anyway, I am here now with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is a color inspiration.  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to be able to recognize the general color palette.  Remember that our challenge is now open to any coloring medium, but you still must have a colored image on your project.

Here is the color inspiration from Design Seeds:



Here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste "Adorbs" 6x6 pad.  The image is Looking Gorgeous from All Dressed Up Stamps.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added lots of Liquid Pearls to her jewelry.  A paper doily and a few Wild Orchid Crafts Cherry Blossoms finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Little Miss Muffet Challenge #90

Good morning!  Happy Thursday!  Hope you've had a good week so far.  We had a gorgeous day yesterday and hopefully today will be the same. It's rare for the humidity to be this reasonable this time of year!  I hope to get out more today to enjoy it!  Right now, though, I am here with this week's Little Miss Muffet DT post.  We have a brand new challenge for you and the theme is everyone's favorite, "anything goes".  No excuses for not coming out for this one!
 
Here is my card for the challenge:


I just had to give another go at one of the awesome Fearless Fairy Tales characters.  Did you enjoy last week's mega release hop? I sure did! This time, I picked Sleeping Beauty.  My card base and mats are SU Buckaroo Blue and the papers are from the Basic Grey Periphery collection.  I colored the image with my Copics on MiC Blending Card.  The sentiment is from A Piece of Heart.  Sharon generously shared it as a Friday Freebie here.  A few smoky gray gems finished my card.
