Pixie Perfect

The beautiful image on my card is the Pixie that was included with the Coloring Class with Betty over at Simply B Stamps.


Now I’ve had her coloured up for a while, I didn’t colour along with the class but I did print her out and then coloured her on the train after work a couple of nights.  She’s been waiting to go on a project ever since and the ‘Using Your Favourite Colours’ challenge over at Through thePurple Haze was the perfect excuse to finally do up a project.

I don’t really have a favourite colour but this image works for that theme as the skin tones are the ones Betty used in the class (mostly) and ever since I coloured up this pixie they have been the only skin tones I’ve used.  So you can say that they are my favourite skin tone colours.  The hair colour is also my favourite non-traditional hair colour although I tend to stick to traditional colours but for an image like this you can’t go for a boring blonde or brunette!  The colour combinations on the wings also spent a long time in my Copic wallet and have been used on a few projects since, for a subtle feel to an image I do tend to find myself going for these.  So I guess you could say that these are my favourite colours, if not in the strict sense that people usually mean!

To make up my card I followed the current sketch at Bearly Mine Challenges.  I’m thinking now maybe I needed some patterned background paper but it’s all glued down so too late to change my mind!  The small piece I actually printed off from the Bearly Mine Designs Steampunk Fantasy digi paper set.
