Copic Colour Challenge #63 --- Pink and Blue

Yep, this is my second post today!  In fact, there will be three posts as I catch up from last week which was very busy, but very fun. 

The Copic Colour Challenge this week uses pastel blues and pink. 

I substituted BG10 Cool Shadow for BG11 and BG01 Aqua Blue for BG02.

I wanted to stay away from my first thought, which was a baby card, but ended up using Mo Manning's "Baby Fairy Yuriko" anyway.  She is a new illustration and I hadn't colored her yet.  I'm glad I did and added a bit of whimsy when using the Copic colors to add to the fairy magic. When coloring her dress I blended the three colors together and added clear Spica glitz, trying to achieve a gossamer look, as in her wings.  Her hair, in bright yellows, is hightlighted further with gold Spica, as though taken from the sun itself.

The gorgeous cutout paper is from KI Memories that I bought back in 2007.  I tend to horde my favorite papers. Silly, isn't it? But I'm glad I pulled it out of my treasure chest.  The sketch for this card is really very simple, but the cutout paper adds so much flair!   Then I added beaded flowers from Michael's putting butterflies where the rhinestone centers originally were. 

I do love this little fairy!  Love the hummingbird, too!  I hope you visit the Copic Colour Challenge and see the wonderful creations by the DT.  Play along, too, if you haven't already.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week!
