Fairy Princess


So this is the first of the September birthdays.

I just couldn't resist this cutie! She is from Mo's Digital Pencil. I don't usually do digital as I really don't like coloring with copics on them - haven't found the right paper yet - if any of you have suggestions, I would appreciate as it really is a neat thing to be able to size obects! I am using the staples cardstock at present. I have an HP printer and the ink smears on all my other copic papers. So, back to this pink and red card. They are my granddaughter's fav colors (she is 8 yrs) so I just had to use them. The aqua (or whatever you want to call the blue) helps them to look good together. I used a lot of red stickles to glam it up and those cutesy gems are the new I-Rock ones! Just had to try that one! It is fun!!! The flowers are wild orchid ones. I bought so many that I am still working on them and I do use them alot. I punched my leaves to match thinking that the green would be too harsh. That lacy strip is a new double sided punch from Martha Stewart! I love it - all in one pass!! I didn't keep track of the copics - sorry. I was fortunate to get the card done. DH came out of retirement again this am. I put him on a plane to go to work so now I have some catching up to do! I am sorry I missed commenting on so many things all summer. Hugs to you all, Barb F

Love this!!!!
Have you tried heat setting?
I have a Cannon Ink Jet...and so far, I've been very lucky. I hear that heat setting and trying to stay clear of the lines help. You've done a perfect job on this one though! :)
