Today I have the beautiful Icicle Fairy to show you! OK, OK, her proper name is ©ching chou kuik's Holly Fairy but I just did not want to color her in all reds and greens so I changed her to an Icicle Fairy! Artistic license! You can find her and then color her any way YOU wish at Sweet Pea Stamps. She can be bought as a single stamp or with 3 other lovelies! I am on a roll now as this is my 3rd Christmas card of the year!!!
I colored my image with copics on Neenah paper. I just found out that this paper is made here in WI. Small world!!! After I finished coloring I tried something I have not done before. I used a set of Pearlescent watercolors to create my background and highlight my image. It is hard to see unless you open up the large image but it adds such a shimmer to her and is very pretty. I need some practice to perfect my technique but was quite happy with my first try! I then added some lace, pearls, snowflakes and holly leaves to embellish my lovely! Thanks so much for letting me share her with you!
