Fairy Wishes

Oooh, an unexpected morning off and it's sunny and bright here in York!  It's taken me a while to get back into the swing of things after my holiday, which is a surprise, really, as I was raring to go.  But as soon as I saw Mo's new Fairy Kiki I couldn't resist picking up my Copics and having a go. 

This will be my Dream Team card for this week and also my entry for Mo's Digital Challenge, where this week's theme is 'Anything Goes!'.

Papers: Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday collection, 'Sunday'.

Tools: EK Success Retro Flower Punches; Floral Punch leaf spray

You have to admit, she is one adorable little fairy.  And that sweet expression - aaaaaah, who could resist?

This little one reminds me of when Daughter was small - that plumpscious little bottom and creamy skin - you can almost smell the baby powder! 

I'm pleased I chose to go a little minimal on the DPs for this one so that Kiki can shine.  I love the summery feel of this Cosmo Cricket paper, though.

Coloured with my Copics (which I seriously need to refill now!) and shaded with my Prismas, this little one needed only a touch of glitter to bring some fairy sparkle to her darling wings and flourishes.

So, I've still lots of colouring to do and I need to get ahead of myself a little over the next few days but it feels good to have completed my first post-holiday project.  And, to make things even better, today is pay day and I can feel some 'stash cash' burning a hole in my pocket!  There's a new craft shop about to open in the city centre and it would be churlish not to show my support, don't you think?

Happy crafting.
