Prairie Fairy DT tryout



This sweet little fairy went thru four different prints/colors before this one made it into a card. The first one was too gloomy, the second one had tea spilled on it (my big tea flooding my desk episode this weekend) then I had another one all ready to go and I had a copic marker mishap. I refilled (first time with refills) one of my copics and must have over-filled it and when I pulled cap off the excess went all over the image. :(

But I like the colors on this one and her polka dot wings and pink streaks in her hair. It's for the DT tryout for Prairie Fairy Designs. I have a pic in my side bar with a link to the details.
The sketch is from a current challenge for Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. I moved the bow but its the same basic sketch. I also used the glitter on the wings to fit in with the Flutterby Wednesday Challenge this week too!

Colored with copics
Worn lipstick distress stickles on dots and hair band
SU punches for flowers
Misc pearls
Misc ribbons
My Mind's Eye Paper
Bazzil cardstock

I love the colors you used. Good luck with the tryout for the DT, fingers crossed for you! The tea mishap made me laugh, I'm very clumsy and have more mishaps than I care to think about!
