Comfy Slippers Fairy

Today's card uses another one of the newest fairies from Saturated Canary. I truly had the best time coloring her up~~ all that gorgeous hair!! I just was in the best mood, so excited to see her come to life and realized that once again, this is a true passion. I can't really put it into words but sometimes I feel I'm just wasting time by making cards but nope, coloring this up and creating this card made me realize, I'm not wasting time. I'm doing what I'm suppose to--following my passion.

I also had so much fun using a new-to-me copic color combo for her hair. I recently discovered Jennifer Dove's blog and her "Color Of the Day". It has helped me to see some new combos and have more fun!!  This hair color combo sounded sort of odd to me at first but now I think I will add it to my favorites! It is~ E35, E08. R59.

I also learned that I need MUCH more practice at transparent objects~~ like her wings as I almost ruined this whole thing when I got to them but some sparkle was able to rescue it!

Here's a little close up of her as I'm so proud of how she turned out! She's printed on Cryogen cardstock and it has a slight sparkle to it so that's the overall sparkle you see! 

I'm entering this card into the current Challenges 4 Everybody-Anything Goes.

Hope you have a fabulous start to your week. It's hot here..and humid---close to 100 the next few days. I'm so thankful for a/c and also that Sam has the next few nights off as tonight it was 112 where he works and it was only around  97 outside!!

Keep smiling!

If all else fails-add pink, sparkle and a butterfly!
