Faeries and Bears, Oh My!


Meet Nadine. To me, she's the Sun Faerie and she's calling out for the sun to break through and shine all over Maine! Isn't she fabulous? When Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design started carrying these faeries, I had to have her and do her in strong, glorious colors. I colored her with my copics and then outlined her dress with my Gold Atyou Spica Glitter Pen. The wings were stamped on vellum using my Champagne Versamark Glitter Pad and then colored with Sunflower Shimmerz. I love this product and how much depth it adds to whatever it touches! The paper is from two of the Dovecraft packets, Fantasy and Abstract. I also used a clear glitter pen to outline the petals and the background on the paper. Gold Glitter Dots fill in the corners and the sun is formed with my circle and scalloped circle nestabilities.

Susana also carries these cute Shy Bears and one of my favorite things to drink is coffee, french vanilla with cream and sugar! This cutie, Tea Cup Shy Bear, so reminds me of how I feel just before I get that first sip! Aren't the green curlers in her hair too cute? I used my copics on her and then colored her with Coffee and Opal Shimmerz. Her adorable band is colored in Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz and I outlined her nose with my clear glitter pen. I used Distressed Stickles in Worn Lipstick along the rim of her cup and the flowers and touched the middle with Scattered Straw. The flowers are from Imagniese and the brads are from Joann's.

I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season and keeping the spirit of Christmas with them. I'll be back!
