Last month I saw this card and was smitten with the image and the colors Christine used to color this sweet fairy. Christine's coloring is terrific and I enjoy looking at what she shares. You might want to take a peek. I've added a few blogs to my Feedly over the past few months where the blogger is a fantastic colorist and seeing what they have created makes me want to color, too. Thanks for the inspiration, Christine (in case she ever stops by to read my little blog)!
I had fun using my Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits to color this. I don't know if anyone is interested in what colors I use, so I don't keep track. If you are interested, please let me know. The pinks were colors I hadn't necessarily pulled out before and I liked how they looked.
A heads up for those who like to use Wink of Stella pens and to color digital images. I honestly don't know what the liquid is in the pen (I've never investigated that) but whatever it is, it sure doesn't play well with printed digital images. It smears the ink. Remember when I mentioned something on that card that Jessica made. That's why she had to color another image I smeared the ink. So I forgot about that when I started to put some WOS on the wings of this little gal (after I had colored everything). I just barely started when I remembered. Thankfully it didn't ruin the work I had done(I'd have been so very sad to have to start coloring the image again because of that). I ended up using lots of Stickles instead.
I wanted to add a little more of something and I know sequins are popular. I've not gotten colored sequins, but I did like how these iridescent sequins(from Hobby Lobby) looked, so added a few for interest. Hopefully they don't detract from the image.
The hello is from the Gingham Backgrounds set from Lawn Fawn. I just love that font! It's stamped in Watermelon ink from Close To My Heart. I also used their Stitched Rectangle die.
That is all from me right now. I thank you very much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day.
