Wish Upon A Star

Hello sweet friends.  I have a Christmas card to share today.  It's been so miserably hot that I thought I'd bring out some snowflakes to play with ;)


This adorable little fairy is Sugar Nellie's Wish Upon A Star.  I really love their fairies, they're just so stinkin' ca-ute!  She's colored with copics and colored pencils and I applied lots of Glamour Dust and Liquid Pearls.  I had glitter everywhere.  It's so messy but a fairy has to have lots of sparkle, right?  The sentiment is by PTI and the papers are from a very old K & Co pad I've had for ages. 

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a great day!

Hugs, Anita

Gorgeous card and love all the sparkle, thanks for joining us at Crafty Sentiments this week

Whimsey said...

ADORABLE!!! Love all the glitter and liquid pearls; your coloring is divine...remind me again - do you color with Copics first and then mainly use your colored pencils for shading?? Do you use OMS to "spread/color" with the pencils?

Love the red gems in the center of the snowflakes.

Yes, it's so hot, I'll take snow anytime. LOL

Cheryl said...

Chris said...

What delightful card! I love that image! You were smart to do a "cooling" card when hot. It's been 113° here for the last few days. Christmas Carols work, too!
