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:

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
