The Holly Fairy

Good morning, peeps and it certainly was a cold one here this morning but it's clear blue sky and sunshine now - wonderful!
Good light meant I could take some photographs this morning, yippee! The light was dreadful yesterday. So, here is the result, Mo Manning's wonderful drawing of the Christmas Fairy Holly. Isn't she gorgeous?
I've used the sketch from the Papertake Weekly Challenge Blog and will be entering this one there.
The DPs are from a collection I picked up at my local craft shop and all it says on the back is 'Carol Wilson Fine Arts Inc.' and each piece is mounted on Bazill card. I really like these papers from the colours in them to the wonderful sparkles on the paper with the snowflake pattern! The holly leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the berries are from Craftwork Cards.
The sentment is from a wonderful collection of digital sentiments available from Pink Petticoat called Girly Curly Sentiments. It's a really good buy and I heartily recommend them.
The fairy is coloured with my Copics (of course!) and the colours are:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, R11, R20
Hair: E50, E51, E53, E57, YR21
Skirt: V12, V15, V17
Sash/Shoes: B000, B00, B02
Holly: YG23, YG67, G28, G29
Shadow (surrounding her): Y000, Y00, Y02, 0
Shadow(at her feet): W1, W3, W5, 0
I'm also going to enter this card in the Totally Gorjuss Challenge 53 which is 'Sparkle'.
I can now tick another Christmas card off my list and I hope you like it.
Bye for now!

  1. Oooh Diane, this is gorgeous. I have this image too, and I love it. I love how you've got the kind of glow around her too.

  2. Diane this is perfection!! I just picked this image up last week and haven't inked her up yet.. now I've got this perfection to live up to ; )
    She really is gorgeous. When I purchased her I thought she was holding an ornament.. I did not realize it was a snow globe!!

  3. A beautiful card Diane! Looks really amazing!
