Fair-ly Sweet

Okay, so I missed the challenge for Tiddly Inks projects including fairies ... but finally got this little imp onto a card.  Love how spring-y this looks, even though we're headed into the fall here in the States.

This sweet thing is called Willow the Greeting Fairy from Tiddly Inks' digital line.  There's also a few sentiments that come with her, but as usual, I like to leave sentiments off the cards - it makes them so much more versatile ... Once I come up with who and what I want to send a card to, I sometimes add a sentiment then, or just treat it like a blank note card.

Willow was colored with Copics (shocked?) after printing onto Cryogen iridescent.  I'm torn between the Xpress Blend It paper and Cryogen.  I love the way the Cryogen automatically gives a sparkle, even if it's not apparent in the photo.  It's kind of like adding Wink of Stella in clear all over.  In fact, I added some Wink of Stella to her wings, but had to do 2 coats, and still, you have to turn the card this way and that to see the extra sparkle.

I used Stampin Up's Pumpkin and Garden Green cardstocks, as well as some fabulous spring-y digital designer paper from Bearly Mine Design
The larger green background is from the Floral Surprise set and the strips across are from the Mini Dots set.  I think they look perfect with the saffron SU grosgrain ribbons and the pretty paper flowers.  Finished off with some pretty pearls.
Copics Used:
     Skin:  E04,11,21,00,000,R20       Hair:  E37,35,31,Y23
     Dress/Boots:  V06,12,01,000,B26,24,21
     Wings:  BG01,000,RV00,BV000
I'm so loving making all these cards.  I'm trying to work on coloring every day and whipping up a card every day-every other day ... Hope you enjoy the results.
Would love to hear what you think.
Take care and have a wonderful day!
