Sweet Motivet Fairy ~ Friday Sketchers Challenge #

Happy Friday! Thank you for stopping by today! I hope your week was a great one and that you will have a fun-filled week-end. The Summer has just flown by and soon all my boys will be heading off to school so we are trying to take advantage of every minute left of summer break. All this to say that I have not been blogging very much at all and have not been commenting either. I hope you understand :)

This week at Friday Sketchers, dear Aud has come up with a wonderful sketch that simply inspired me! I have had this lovely Motivet fairy image for a little while now and it was with great delight that I finally inked her up and colored her! Isn’t she sweet? 

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 142

I colored her with copic markers and then added tons of stickles to her wings and those of the butterfly. I created the blue shadow around her with a prismacolor pencil and OMS. I love the way it glows around her. The flower was originally white but I airbrushed it with the same colors as her dress and the flower in her hair so that they would tie in together.

The little corner frames were made with a Cuttlebug die and some glittery paper. The die was part of a set of 4 that I found at Walmart! I added a tiny adhesive gem to each one. It just finishes it off perfectly and I am glad that I thought of doing it. Sometimes I think of things AFTER they are photographed and I am loading them into my post! LOL!
