Faery Ink Meets the Outlawz Sketch
I really had a fun weekend playing with the Faery Ink FB Group at the Unicorn Masquerade Birthday Ball. We played games, received lovely freebies and there was a costume contest and inspiration posts galore. This beauty is Unicorn Masquerade Moon Fairy, one of the costumes I colored over the weekend. She's colored with Copics with a gold gel pen for the stars and I did the background with the "resist" method of using alcohol and a Q-Tip to create texture in the sky. Today I added some Stardust Stickles to her wings, mask and horn for more sparkle.
I didn't have time to do a project with her until today, following the Outlawz Wednesday Sketch, last minute as usual. What can I say? The DP was on my desk from yesterday's project and looked great with the background I'd colored so YAY! I cut her out with a Spellbinder's Grand Circle and Used Gold mirror card stock for the scalloped circle mat. The strip of light blue glitter paper was also on my desk (no, I don't clean up after myself, obviously) so WooHoo for that, too. I thought I had some gold colored adhesive stars for the swirly part in the corner, but if I do, they were nowhere to be found today, so I used a border punch that happened to have a number of different sized stars and punched from the gold, as well. Gluing them on individually was a PITA, but I love how it came out.
I'm also adding this to the DL.Art May Linky Challenge, Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #81 AG, Creates and Makes #21 AG, Jo's Scrap Shack FFC #233 AG (3/3), the Colour Crazy Challenge Wk 18 AG w/hand colored image, 613 Avenue Create May AG/optional Mainly Blue, ...
