au naturel

I know you've come across an image you couldn't wait to work with. Here's one of my many. Time is not kind to me so 5 minutes here, 10 there. She is finally done.

This stunning Ivy fairy comes from Delicious Doodles
Colored in copics and prisma pencils. Thank you to Melenie Holtz, who inspired my colors. I knew I wanted greens but oh, how this lady can color
Backgrounds are from DCWV Linen closet stack and stash. Distressed with knife and file, then inked on all layers.
Frames are nestabilites. Leaf die from sizzix
Buttons and ribbons from stash.

She felt like someone a man would go for. Hmmm, wonder why, lol. So, I made her for a someone special.

I'm entering her into:

    Thanks for visiting my blog and for leaving such a nice answer your question, I use Make It Colour paper or Bristol Board for my colouring. I have other papers too that are good, but these are the ones I use most of the time. My leprechaun was done on the Make It Colour paper. CoB
