Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #42 ~ Wings Challenge

Good Morning, wow has it been two weeks already?...
There's so much going on behind the scenes I forget to add interesting posts to my blog, well at least my fortnightly challenges keep me active on here, we have a lovely theme challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
It's all about wings, so I went for a special fairy she has a butterfly friend (obviously). I started by drawing my fairy using the curly fringe style from the mini profile templates and the winter fairy wingswith plain old pencil and drew her a hand too using mini poseable hand as her friend needed a perch.
I have stamped her features with the coordinating face stamp with either grey or black inks. The butterfly was created using the butterfly pieridae set, I masked the large wing before stamping the back wing, I just love how well this works :)
So, the whole thing was coloured using copic markers, yum It's been awhile since I've coloured anything quite so big, I cut an A4 to 6", I had done the whole sheet but didn't like the arm placement so trimmed the bottom off, as you do.
I was trying to achieve a soft nearly watercolour look with my copic colour choices, it was quite a challenge. Her wing didn't come out as I had imagined and I ended up covering the whole thing in wink of stella glitter.
I then decided to make this a tri fold card and finished off with an adorable little sentiment from the whimsical woodland set 1(fox)

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #41 ~ Sketch Challenge

Good Morning, wow September already...
Today we have a new sketch challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog...
I used quite a few stamps on my christmas card, 
I went for a fun colour combo for the snowflake background, 
Then I just had to stamp my all time favourite deer and although the sentiment is a little lost I think it still kinda works... I might just need some bright pink embossing powder.
I finished off my card with a little hint of houndstooth and a little sparkle on the antlers not that the camera picks it up. It's nearly a one layer card, certainly flat enough.
