Some Metal and a Fairy

Hi Sweet Pea Nation,

For my card today, I decided to gather some metal washers and incorporate these into my card. Since it's been ages since I've used my copics, I was a little worried about coloring but Teresa Sherman's Steampunk Fairy is such an easy image to color because Teresa did all the hard parts..... the shading.
I used regular metal washers and colored these with my Bic Gold Poster Paint marker. I also took some wire and coiled it for her arm jewelry.

I used some Glossy Accent to fill the earing jewelry and glue down the "arm band". The sentiment is from Plate #98 which I cut apart and edged with Distress Ink.
Super fun and considering my lack of mojo, this Steampunk Fairy has put me on the right track to find that ever elusive craft mojo :-).
Thanks for stopping by and seriously, grab your coloring medium of choice, head over to Sweet Pea Stamps for some beautiful stamps and have fun! I promise you, you'll be glad you did!


  1. How imaginative - great use of metal embellishments, especially loving the earring.

    The metal and the corrugated papers go so well together.

  3. Love it Micki, so coooool! Love her earings and the metal round discs you used as embellishements. Your coloring on her hair and dress are awesome

  4. Wow Micki, this is AWESOME!!! I haven't even inked her up yet(believe it or not). I love the colors the used on her so vintage steampunk. I also love the papers and all the metal pieces you used around her and as her jewelry. This is just wonderful Micki and I love it.
