Tiddly Inks Challenge #141

For the next two weeks over at Tiddly Inks' Challenge Blog, they're having a challenge to create any kind of project, the only stimulation is that it be a Tiddly Inks fairy image.  This is what I came up with, and I think it COULD very well be the start of making holiday cards this season.  I've been so lax over the past couple of years that I've not sent cards out - shame on me ... well, here's to starting off (or ending?) the year right!
Now, technically, this image is the Christmas Pixie - but hey, she's got wings, right?  That makes her a fairy of sorts in my book ... I colored her with Copics on Cryogen iridescent - love this paper!  Still haven't gotten a new color cartridge, so scrounged for this Stampin' Up designer paper with red in it.  I used Real Red and some old Green Galore (wanted it brighter than norm) cardstock, also from SU. 

I don't know if any of you recall, but had a major computer crash in August and lost everything.  I went to use my Silhouette to cut out these snowflakes and realized that I had to reinstall the software and reload all my previous files from silhouette.com, so that took a large part of the afternoon!  Anyway, obviously it's back up and running.

Copics used:
     Skin:  E04,11,21,00,000,R20
     Hair:  E37,29,35,31,Y23
     Wings: YG67,63,61,03
     Hat/Dress:  R39,46,27,22
     Others:  Y26,18,B41

This was really cute, and I hope you enjoyed it ... head over to Tiddly Inks to play along ...
Have a great day!
