The Blue-Haired Fairy

This adorable image is called Fairy Dance and is by Belles 'n Whistles Stamps.  I won her by commenting on the DT's blog hop a couple of weeks ago!  Yippee!  This image was so fun to colour!  The dress was just like a flower!  Beautiful!  As per usual, I added odd colours into my Copic Marker blends to make the green and blue match the papers I wanted!  So here are the Copic Markers I used (hair-BG07, BG02, R20, B91; dress & shoes-YG17, YG07, YG03, Y21; skin-E21, E00, E000, R20; flowers & lips-R22, R20; wings-Y17, Y21)

You can really see the sparkle I added to the wings from this angle:

Here are some wonderful challenges that helped me shape this card:

Digi Bells Guest DT Call - Sketch
I LOVE Elizabeth Bell images!  I already own a few and I love the sweet child-like images!  How could I not apply for the GDT position?  : )  (Plus the sketch is so awesome!)

One Crazy Stamper - April Flowers!
Of course, I included the flower for another chance to win an awesome gift certificate from my Copic supplier!  Lora is fabulous, of course!

Basic Grey Challenges - Easter/Spring
I think that sweet pink flower in the corner is the epitomy of spring!  The Basic Grey product I used was the 6x6 Margolaine paper pack

Simon Says Stamp and Show - Some Buttons
Alright, so I only have one button.  I had been thinking of this challenge when I added it!
