So Soft Fairy with Paint Swatches


There are still a few days left for Think Ink Challenge #18 to use paint swatches. You could win free stamps so hurry over and play!

I happen to be in the process of picking colors to repaint our whole house so I just happen to have many paint swatches here. I choose a couple of pretty colors and punched butterflies out of them and also used those colors to inspire this whole piece. I always color with such bold colors that I thought I'd try something different for this sweet little fairy from Artful INKables Fairy Whimsey set....and color softly. I got a little carried away on the wings but the rest of her is exactly what I was aiming for.

Stamps: Artful INKables Fairy Whimsey
Paper: Papertrey White, Soft Sky
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Soft Sky
Accessories: Nesties, Copics, Cricut & George Cartridge (ovals), paint swatches, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch


Enjoy!

So pretty, Michelle! I've always loved this fairy! I'll have to see if I have any paint chip samples laying around. Maybe I'll give this one a try! TFS!
