Orchid Fairy

Hi again!  I'm back with a quick second post today.  Sorry, I know you must be sick of me by now! It worked out that I have a few more posts this week than usual, but I've been trying to get a few projects finished and they seem to have come at once.  Anyway, I have another card project to share.

Here it is:

My card base and mats are GKD Soft Sand and the patterned papers are from my scrap bag.  I think one is K & Co. and the other is Magnolia, but I'm not positive.  The gorgeous image is Orchid Fairy from Aurora Wings.  You can find it in Mitzi's Etsy shop here.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics using three different blue color families.  I added Aqua Stickles to her bracelet, Icicle Stickles to her earrings and strap, and Crystal Stickles to the "bubbles".  I added a little Gold Stickles to the flower centers.  It's very sparkly in real life!  A triple-loop seam binding bow and a few gems from my stash finished my card.  I didn't want anything taking away from the beautiful image.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E50, E53, E57
Dress and Wings: BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05, BG07
Bubbles and leaves: BG10, BG72, BG75, BG78
Orchids: B91, B93, B95, B97

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll see you soon!
