Fantasy Fairy

SCROLL DOWN FOR THE PROMARKER GIVEAWAY

I only have a couple of these manga type fairy stamps, but every so often I enjoy getting them out and doing a spot of colouring - I think she is quite beautiful. The pearl trim was picked up as a clearance remnant from Jo-Anns, and I have found the perfect punch to back the Craftwork Cards sentiment circles that I am so fond of - it is by Fiskars and is the 1.5" scallop punch (3 1/8cms)

Promarkers used
Skin coral, sunkissed pink, blush
Hair caramel, tan, ginger, ivory
Clothes and wings lavender, lilac, ice grey 3 


I was out shopping today (there's a novelty!) and in walked the Golden Girls - well, not really, but their combined ages must have totalled at least 220 years. They had dressed for their outing - big hair, big heels, big everything really, with a lot of fake gems and animal prints. Get the picture? I was fascinated, and couldn't stop peeking at them from behind the racks of clothes. I stopped stalking them when they all pounced with squeals of glee on some nighties (do you call them that in the States?) emblazoned with rhinestones and bearing the legend 'Sassy AND Sexy'. I got too-much-information overload, and  left. Good for them though!
