Fairytale Dreams

Hello! Today I have a card made with a sweet image from Wishes and Dreams.

I used Copics to color the image, starting by filling in the hair with Y000. Then I used Y21 to add some shading. (Y23 was pictured by mistake- oops!)

Added more shading to the hair with Y23.

More shading with E33.

Added the deepest shading with E35.


On her skin, I used YR000.


Then added a little R00 to her cheeks and to shade. 

Added a little more color to her cheeks and eyelids, using R02.

On the dress, I used B23, with B26 to shade. Then I used my blender pen to push in some highlights.

On the wings, I used RV21.

For the mushroom, I started with Y17 on the spots.

Added Y23.

Then filled in with Y000.

For the remainder of the mushroom, I outlined with YR07.


Added YR04.





Then filled in with YR12. After coloring, I cut out the image.

For the background, I sponged Memento Cantaloupe in the center.

Then sponged Memento Danube Blue from the edges on the top half.

Sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves around the edges on the bottom half.


I used my YG93 Copic marker to add some wispy grass to the background. The image was adhered with Pop Dots. I made another layer by sponging Memento Bamboo Leaves, lightly, around the edges of some white cardstock and embossed with my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onxy and used a Creme De Menthe card base. The sentiment is also from Wishes and Dreams.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
