Pixie Fairy And A Sketch Challenge

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!) Image

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!

  1. Your fairy is the star on your card. What a luxurious head of hair – how many mums would have loved her daughter(s) to have such gorgeous hair? (well, me for one 🙂 ) and those magical glittery wings ….. well a beautiful fairy deserves beautiful wings and you’ve made sure she got hers. The pretty backing circles and red ric-rac enhance the lovely image. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
