Holly Fairy

Hi Everyone,

I think the heat is generating wishful dreams of Christmas, snow and cool temperatures which meant I finished coloring ching-chou kuik's Holly Fairy, part of Plate #60. The sentiment is from Plate #36.

This fairy had been in my 'unfinished' drawer for a while but I thought I'd give it a shot to see if I could get something going. The card itself isn't anything fancy BUT I think I saved this gorgeous fairy. And I wanted a silver background - something shimmery. So I used my silver metalic Sharpie pen.

I also used Viva Decor Gel Gloss on the berries and added some shimmer and glimmer to her wings with an orange Atyou Spica pen. Since I used copics to color the image, I made sure to do the background with the sharpie last.

Thanks for stopping and don't forget to check out the store for the latest new releases!
