A card for Jen

When I needed an image to make a card for my niece's birthday, I immediately thought of this cute fairy from A Day For Daisies. I'm not sure why, but for some reason, it reminds me of Jen when she was younger. I had fun coloring her with my Copic's, trying to keep it soft and pastel, but as always, I have a hard time leaving white, so it ended up a little darker than I pictured. I do like it though. The background is all Copic colored as well, and the wings were just touched with a little yellow, then I used my concoction of shimmer paint to give it sparkle. (I have the instructions for this in my tutorial section if you are interested). I distressed the edges of the papers, (some DCWV and some Basic Grey), then finished it with a little baker's twine from My Minds Eye and a matching button on the stamped sentiment. I think Jen will appreciate it this happy little card.
