Just Having Fun

I needed to take a break from the daily grind, and I decided to use this sweet little flower fairy. The layout is again in the European style. Yes, I am still very much in love with this style and am playing with it every opportunity that I can. I really hope that I captured the style.
stamps: Hanglar and Stanglar, Magnolia, SU Fancy Flexible Phrases, SU Itty Bitty BG
Paper : Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Cryogenic White Shimmer CS, Bazzill, Basic Grey DP
Other : Copic Marker and airbrush system, Wizard Nestability Rectangle, Faber and Castel color pencils, Odourless solvent, Prima, Quickutz dies, brads, stickles, linen thread.

I started by stamping the image in black ink and then cutting it using the Nestability rectangle. I then embossed it using said Nestability, and then airbrushed it using Copic YR21. I removed the Nestability which was my mask and then colored in my image using my Faber and Castel pencils and then blended it with solvent and stumps. I added stitching around. The buckle is Magnolia and was stamped on shimmer CS and then colored in the same as the image. Everything else is self explanatory. Thanks so much for stopping by and having patience with my lack of posting time.
