A little fairy mischief

This is a Christmas Fairy with a bit of a difference, she's not sitting on the top of a tree looking cute instead she's playing with the decorations and getting up to mischief.  Or I suppose you could look at her in another light and she's in awe of the sparkly Christmas bauble.

I've coloured the image with Copics, this is my third attempt LOL!  The first one the card i was using gave some bleed with the red so I had to reprint.  The second time I was doing the ornament and orangy colour but I couldn't get the blending quite right and it looked an awful mess, so I tried to cover it up using red - wish looked too dark!

So in my third attempt I played it same and went to a pale ornament, which I added lashings of DecoArt glitter to get some sparkle.  I've also added the same glitter to her wings.  For a change you can actually se the sparkle in the photos - how often does that happen?

I've given the edges of the image a grungy dark feel as I wanted a fairy magic glow to the card.
The image is back with red and black card to keep in theme with the image.

I've added a few rhine stones for extra bling and interest and finally a Merry Christmas sentiment coloured with black Copic from Crafty Moly.

Happy creating lovelies!
