Through the Purple Haze Challenges #18

It's Monday................!!!! And time for another challenge at Through the Purple Haze Challenges!!

First, our sponsor is Delicious their stamps! They are giving away a 4 digi prize for our winner this week.

Second, our theme this week is "Winter Scenes (optional with Animals or People)".  I used an image from Delicious Doodles called Holly Fairy.

Here is my card. It is mostly white except for the colored image and the peach colored background layer.

I colored with copic markers:
Skin:  E000, E01, R30
Lips: R37
Eyes: B16
Hair: R0000, R000, R01, R21, R11
Holly: G17
Berries: R37
Wings: G0000, G000, G00, RV0000, R000, R00
I used an embossing folder for the second background layer and cut another white layer from some glittery white cardstock with my Cuttlebug using Spellbinders Fancy Ribbon Threader (the ribbon threader part is covered up by my image layer.  Such a versatile die!)  I added some Diamond Stickles (my favorite Stickles) to the background around the image and added 5 satin flowers with gem centers (found these at Walmart in the sewing section).
Hope you will join in on the Challenge this week. We had over 60 entries this last week! How awesome!!

  8. I like what you did with the wings Darcy - the pink and green fading into white in the middle... makes them look quite transparent! I also like that her hair is the soft peach as the base mat. Thank you for playing “Anything Goes – with an optional twist of Holiday Thanks or a Hostess Gift” at our house!
