Its challenge day at My Time To Craft and the theme is “fairy nice”! Armed with my new Copic kit, I decided to try coloring a digi for this. I chose this cute cookie fairy from The Paper Shelter for the image.
Here is my card:
Cardstock: PTI rustic cream for base, Patterned paper from stash
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Walnut stain and Tattered rose distress inks
Accessories: Prima pearls, Prima roses
Stamps: The Paper Shelter Cookie Fairy, PTI Happy Trails sentiment
I colored the little cookie fairy with the same Copic beginner’s kit that I posted about. Since I didn’t have a whole lot of Copic shades, I used glitter pens, Tombow markers and my distress inks wherever required to fill the gap. The cookie jar for example is colored with frayed burlap distress ink and silver glitter gel pen. The fairy’s face is colored with tattered rose distress ink. I really need some skin tone Copics!
Fussy cut the fairy and adhered it to the card with some dimensionals. The scallop behind the fairy is a punched shape.
I had read a whole lot about the power of Copics for coloring on surfaces other than paper. Decided to try it out with my Prima pearls and the effect was amazing! Added a sentiment from PTI Happy Trails and some Prima roses to complete the card.
Hope you liked the card! If you can, do join us at My Time To Craft for the challenge! And don’t forget to hop over and see what my fellow DT members made.
