Lilli Faye

Hi again!  I am back with a quick second post today to share something I've been working on for a few days.  I've had a few stops and starts and total do-overs and it still needs improvement, but I had to call it quits and post it before I lost the nerve.  This was purely a coloring exercise and I obviously need lots more practice.  Next time, I'd make the image, especially the fairy, bigger so it was easier to color and shade, but here goes:

I merged two magical images from Make it Crafty - Magical Mushroom Digi Stamp and Lilli Faye.  I printed the merged image on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics (colors below).  I colored the clouds and sky with my Copics, too.  I added lots of Star Dust Stickles to her wings and dress, Yellow Stickles to the butterflies and White Opal Liquid Pearls to the spots on the mushrooms. I finished my card with a triple-loop seam binding bow, a millifiori polymer clay button (from Nat's Etsy shop, PolymerClayBox) and a few chipboard elements from Make it Crafty that I still had stashed (no longer available).

Here is a close-up of the image:

Copic colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Reds: R22, R35, R37, RV29, E19
Browns: E41, E447, E49, E55, E57
Greens: YG01, YG03, YG17, YG25, YG67

Thanks for stopping by again and indulging me while I share my coloring practice!

Oh, and my card is also for The Squirrel and The Fox Challenge #50 (whimsical).  The challenge was sponsored by Make it Crafty.

Have a great evening and see you soon!

  12. Fantastic! What the heck do you mean, you need practice! You did a spectacular job girlie! I just tried my hand at merging too, I don't know why I shied away from it really. I understand about making them images bigger though, I have my nephew drawing now, and told him that he needs to start making his images bigger so I can colour them, especially the faces.
    Great work, love the bling!!
