Here is my card:
I decided to go with a Christmas card for my stash. My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye All is Bright 6x6 pad. The sweet image is Fairy Merrily from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection. I turned her into a Christmas fairy! She is printed on Hammermill card and colored with my Copics. I added some Gold Liquid Pearls and Red Stickles for some added detail. Some taffeta ribbon, a few pearls and a shimmery poinsettia from my stash finished my card.
Here is a close-up of the colored image:

She's so cute in her red outfit. Reminds me of all those holiday dance recitals!ReplyDelete
Great coloring of the cute image!
I love your paper choices and layering. I especially love that the cherub in the patterned paper is looking up at the little ballerina fairy.
Great take on the sketch too!
