Today, I added to my growing collection of Christmas cards, and combined Christmas with the current sketch challenge on Little Miss Muffet’s blog.
I have to admit it, I have a real soft-spot for this little Pixie Fairy, which I found as a free download on Pollycrafts! I love colouring her hair, creating waves and curls with a combination of markers 🙂 Anyway, today, I kept to traditional Christmas colours and tried using an almond Pro-Marker for the wings, with a smidgen of Crystal Stickles over the top…and I have to say, I am really chuffed with the results!! The wings have a little shimmery sparkle to them, which seems both more festive and magical…. (I think I’m getting a bit carried away now!)
After colouring the image, I mounted it on some dark green card, then popped the two layered circles beneath it. The papers I used for the circles are from the Forever Friends’ “Santa’s On His Way” papers. A little red ric-rac and the sentiment (which came with Pixie Holly) and the card was complete!
