SC221 Spring Blossom Fairy

I have 6 classes I am teaching this weekend so my time is pretty limited but I took the time out to do Wednesday's Split Coast Sketch Challenge 221.

I decided to combine it with the Copics Color Challenge The color challenge was to use these colors R20, E31 and RV04.

I began by stamping my Nap Time Fairy from Repeat Impressions on Cryogen white paper with Memento Black ink. I added the grass border also from Repeat Impressions below it. I used the following Copic markers:
Flower Center - E31
Petals - RV02, RV04
Stem and leaves - YG21, YG23
Fairy - R20
Hair - E97
Wings - BG11
Grass - YG25

I outlined the flower with Cool Gray 1 but then did not like the stark white of the cardstock. So I colored it in with R00 then swirled my blender pen all over it to create the mottled background. On retrospect, I wish I had not outlined the flower. The saying is also from Repeat Impressions. I used RV04 to color the ribbon to match the card. Added some pearls and I was done. The pink DP is from Doodlebug, the other is from Kaiser.

Aww this is gorgeous Sandy!
I especially like that grass. I will have to see if I can get anything similar 'over here'. It's very effective.
