A Fairy's Best Friend - The Paper Shelter challenge #468


Hey all! I hope you are all having a fantastic week! I am starting my creative week off with a new Paper Shelter challenge #468 - Color It! With my daughter's birthday coming up I decided to color A Fairy's Best Friend.  I also have had this stamp on my waiting/wish list to color so this was perfect timing. 

Meadow likes to play Minecraft like most teenagers. In Minecraft, she likes to make mushroom houses because she absolutely loves them, now you know where Minecraft works into this card haha! Her birthday wish is to have a mushroom-themed birthday party. The party decorations should be interesting.

I did however decide to go with coloring the mushrooms like Porcini Mushrooms to be a little different. I let Meadow pick out the color of the little fairy's clothes, and she still doesn't suspect that this card is for her :) heehee! 

I fussy cut the image out so that I could have a nice soft background with texture behind her. I did the texture with Daffodils Layering Stencil. I put this on all my bits of paper. I actually used watercolor paper for the white layers. 

The last things that I added were the beautiful flowers and the dew drops. 

The Copic markers I used are: 
Skin: E00, 04, 11, 21, R20, 30, 32
Hair: E41, 42, 43, 44, 47
Dress: YG00, 01, 03 , 07, R81, 83, RV00, 10
Wings & Butterfly: BV0000, BV000, B0000, 000, 00, 01
Grass: G24, 28, YG21, 23, 25
Mushrooms: E40, 41, 42, 43, 44
