Holly Fairy

Hi there ­čÖé This was what you would call a real last minute card! I had made all the cards that had to be mailed, and was making the ones that I was handing out as needed. Well, this one was down to the wire, as I finished it off about half an hour before my friend showed up on boxing day!! Whatever works during the holidays, right? I used the gorgeous freebie from Janna Fairy Art that was given out in the Kit and Clowder Advent event on Facebook. I had chosen my papers, so when I colored the image with my Copics, I took care to match them up as closely as possible.

The starry paper has glitter elements, so I brought a bit of that into the image with some Wink of Stella and a bit of sparkle on the wings. After layering all the elements together, I stamped a sentiment and die cut some holly to add to the design. For just a bit more sparkle, I added a couple strips of glittery embelishments as a finishing touch.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
