Glitter 'n' Sparkle Challenge#225

Sunday, February 5, 2017
Hi Everyone. As I sit here typing I am listening to the rain pour down on our tin roof - taking the humid hot summer Sunday down to a pleasantly cooler one. I love the rain on the tin roof - very calming. 

As it is Sunday it is time for a new challenge over at the Glitter 'n' Sparkle Challenge Blog. We are up to challenge # 225 and this week the theme is....

Our sponsor this month is Cute as a Button and the lucky winner will get to choose 2 images from the store. 

For my card I have used the super cute image - Candy Cane Fairy from Cute as a Button. I printed out the image with grey lines to go for the "no-lines" look. You can still see the outline but it certainly makes a huge difference when you colour with the lighter lines - it looks a lot softer. As always she is coloured with Copic markers and I have used a tiny bit of prismacolor pencils on her lips and dress. I decided to keep the card pretty clean and simple and let the image shine. I teamed the image up with the candy strip patterned paper from Scrapperin - 31 Winterage, and the greeting is from a Simon Says Stamp set - Merry Everything. I have then layered it all up with Kraft cardstock.

Copics Used:
- Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
- Hair - E43, E44, E47, E49
- Candy Cane - R22, R24, R27, R29, R39, C0, C1, C3
- Green Dress - YG00, YG25, YG67, YG97
- Wings - R11, R22, R24

I have entered this card into the following challenges
I hope you have a great week and get a change to join us in this challenge. Check out all the great inspiration from the Design Team and don't forget to leave some love.
