‘Fairy’ Good Luck to You

jsldt29thmarch 001

It’s the final week of the month long St.Patrick’s Day/Good Luck challenge at Just Some Lines.Well,that’s another month over!To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a digi if you’re picked as part of the Top 3 🙂

I’ve taken the adorable Fairy – Bring Home Luck by Just Some Lines  and tried a new technique – well new to me…LOL  After colouring the fairy’s skin and hair I decided I wanted a softer look for her clothing to suit the background papers more.I’ve seen Nikky Hall of Polkadoodles fame use a Mix’It Palette and a Graph’It Blender,with Brush Nib attached,to pick up colour to give a watercolour effect on Create and Craft TV.Now,I don’t have the pallette so had to improvise on that part but I do have the pen equipped with the nib 😛 I’m quite pleased for a first attempt and onto my usual smooth marker colouring card too!For her hair behind her wings I had already use a pale colour and blended it out and for a see through look I ‘painted’ over the top in the chosen wing colour.Personally I think the layering has worked well.After colouring the clover it just looked too dark and overpowering so I just grabbed the Blender again and used it this time to ‘bleach’ out the colour.So she wasn’t floating in a sky of nothingness I drew a very pale blue/grey line around her and the clover then took the Blender and utilised it to soften the edges.Such a versatile and useful tool!To make her fairydust trail nice and sparkly I dotted it with a Graph’It Shake Glitter Gold Marker.I just had to use my recently acquired large corner rounder,especially as it took an age to find one,along with this pretty Tonic Studios border.The sentiment is a freebie from Netty’s Cards (thanks Annette) and the Good Luck has been colour tinted by a Graph’It Marker.Some baker’s twine has been tied to the border.I made some buttons from a sheet of this delightful paper and and an epoxy button sticker,trimmed with scissors.A little wooden butterfly button has been added alongside these and for an extra touch his spots have been dabbed with the Graph’It Shake Glitter Gold Marker 🙂

    You did a wonderful job coloring this! It is soft and sweet and the image is adorable. I used a technique like this to color the card I have posted right now too – but my image is much darker. Love your totally sweet card. Thanks for sharing it with us in the Pattie’s Creations Challenge!
