Here's a sample from me...
For this card I used the beautiful Butterfly Catcher,
She a lovely elegant fairy and sits very nicely on a 5 1/2" square.
I dived into my copics for this one, and thought her dress would look lovely in yellow like the flowers in spring time.
I've added sparkle to her wings, and little detail dots on her dress in white pen. 
I've added colour to the edges of her hoping it would look like she was magical and had a ethereal glow, not sure how well this worked.
The background is all copics too, I've used rubbing alcohol with a brush to get the bokeh effect, love how this came out, it's like she's flying.
And because we love to know what colours I've used here they are.

Today, we’ve enlisted some super talented designers to inspire you with ideas on how to use these beautiful new garden fairies! Hop along for lots of fun and inspiration!

Have fun on the HOP!
Enjoy a wonderfully creative day!
