I'm back ... kind of ...

Hello dear crafting friends ... sorry I haven't been around ... I'm a bit ill at the moment.  I have a terrible sore throat, cough, headache and generally feel pretty crappy.

But ... I did feel up to doing a bit of colouring tonight so gave it a go.  I coloured my brand new Tickled Pink Image - Winter Snow Fairy.  I really wasn't sure where to start ... but I'm thrilled with the result.

 The card is inspired by a sketch over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge blog.  I haven't done many sketches ... but I should do more because it really makes putting together the card a lot quicker.  I also have some new papers!!!  So what I did this time was select the papers and then colour the image to match.  The papers are from My Mind's Eye - Simply Delightful pack.

I coloured the image in copics had a bit of trouble with the dress because I only had BG10 & BG13 .. nothing in between so the blending was hard ... but I think it worked in the end.  Have used the ever faithful Ranger Ice Stickles on the wings, snowflake etc and the spica pen on other areas.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Tickled Pink Stamps - #46 Sketch
Pan Pastel - #9 Frosty And Bright
2 Sisters Challenge - #66 Let It Sparkle
