Lovely Harvest Fairies

I just stumbled onto Crafts & Me, by seeing someone's blog with the DT button for them and checked them out. They have this cool freebie stamp and contest going on on their FB page here. They sell digi stamps and rubber stamps by one of my favorites, Hannah Lynn Designs, and a whole bunch of other artists. Couldn't resist the freebie, by Robin Pushay, though it was a little daunting at first—lots to color.

But in the end, I watched both The Originals (vampires in N'awlins, yes, please) and Downton Abbey (flappers and motorcars for your perusal) and had a ball while I took hours to finish this.

First I used my Prismacolor pencils, then added Tombow markers (which are pretty vivid) and then added fun dots and lines with the white gel pen. Next was some watercolor with one of the light blue Tombow markers for the sky and finally, yes, Stickles! I stickled Star Dust the wings of both fairies as you can see better in the close-up. 

I don't know why I gave the top fairy purple and white striped tights, technically they should've been black and white in homage to Wizard of Oz, but I didn't think. Next time, she's getting Dorothy shoes too with my Xmas Red Stickles.

Happy Tuesday,


I love hearing from my crafty friends!
