Kitsune Fox Fairy.....


Happy Monday everyone!!  I have been sooo busy lately painting the inside of my house.  I am working my way through the entire house room by room.  Now you have to understand we have a 4 bedroom house so that is allot of rooms.  I just hate the paint that the builders use when they build a house. Feels like chalk and you can not wipe it down at all.  I have lots of Grandkids and they always have their hands on the walls so that is a big problem. I can say that I have finished the kitchen, great room, living room and downstairs powder room plus a hallway and the landing or stairway going down to our basement.  Today I start with the master bath!!! Enough babbling!

 I am here to show you another lovely from Elaine Cox's Art Collection called "Kitsune Fox Fairy" Many of you know my husband is half Korean and I am drawn to anything with the Oriental flavor.  I guess that is why I picked him!!! Hahaha! When I saw this beauty I knew I had to ink her up and KREATE!  You can buy her as a single stamp or on a sheet with 3 other stamps and two sentiments at none other than Sweet Pea Stamps!


I love to follow sketches and this time I used a sketch that was designed by my good friend Pascale at  Sweet Pea Stampers!  I colored my sweet girl with my copics in Fall colors since we are fast approaching and then added gold pen to various areas as highlights.  Stickles of course were dabbed here and there! I also used Dazzling Diamonds glitter on their wings. Glossy accents were put on her eyes, mouth and the moon. My background was done with pastel chalks.  My flowers are from Prima and instead of printing a sentiment I hung a charm I had for ages as one from the flowers! I hope that will still count for the sketch!!! To finish it off pearl buttons were added to the corners!
