Lilly Fairy -- Crafty Sentiments Designs

Hi Everyone!!
Please scroll down to see
my recent blog candy winner!!

Welcome to another Tuesday with
Crafty Sentiments Designs!!
It's challenge time!!

Here is the Lilly Fairy and I went with some
bright spring and summer colors instead of pastels!!
I just love bright colors and they always make me happy!!
The weather has been dreary and cold in most places and I think
we need to WELCOME SPRING as early as we can this year!!  :) :) :) 


I have colored her up with Copics and Shinhan markers, 
& the embellies that I used are: ribbon, a vine die cut
and lots & lots of embossing powders!!!  :) :) 
I have really enjoyed mixing them to make
my own custom colors!!  It's so fun!!

Here is a close-up of the Lilly Fairy
here are the colors that I used:

  41. Nicole, this is absolutely gorgeous! You are right indeed... bright and chipper colors are more than welcome during this harsh winter! :o) Your coloring is extraordinary.. I bet you hear that often. :o) Framing her in a custom mix of embossing powders is truly brilliant and so unique! The patterns are so gorgeous and I love that vine frolicking along the center. :o) You are such a talent, my new friend! What a joy to visit you. :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
