A Pixie Sketch



Hey there!! I combined 2 challenges for this card. First, I used this sketch that I found over on Amy's blog. It's so well balanced - I love it! It's also the 1st, meaning it's time for another Copic Creations challenge. We were challenged to color brunette hair. No problem there!! I've colored a few blondies lately, but for the most part my images usually have brown hair :) I can't stop using these Pixies. They just make me smile. Heidi was colored in with Copics. I paper pieced her little skirt on. Isn't she stylish? I also went over the wings with Pixie Dust Shimmerz. It might be hard to see unless you click on the big pic, but I used my Janome Sew Mini to add some stitching around the pink panel. It looks so dainty and sweet. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

She's adorable - I can totally see why it's hard not to use her! I know what you mean about brown hair - that's usually what I color too, lol!
