A Fairy Sweet Day

 My long-time friend from my high-school days recently celebrated a birthday.  I made a card to send to her.  We both like the fantasy genre: dragons and magic and fairies and such.  So, this image from Meljen’s designs was perfect!

I am still new to the world of stamping, but my last guided venture gave me the courage to try some more.  I printed this digital stamp on my computer with regular ink and did my best to heat set it with my hair dryer.  Then I pulled out my Copic markers and started colouring.
The only blending I did was in the butterfly's wings with two different blues and the hair with two different browns.  In the body of the butterfly, I used the colour blender (which I call the colour eraser) to lighten a highlight line.  I put stickles glitter glue on the fairy's wings.

 Of course, I had to do my favourite thing and get some embossing in there somewhere, so I embossed a border on the card.  I hope she liked it!
