For my card today I have used one of the new Wee Stamps, this is Summer Fairy.  LOVE love love her hair!  I have used the new Nitwit Collections A Slice of Life digi papers.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Ticket Notes set

I have coloured the image with Copics and pencils
Hair E29, 25, 23, 50 (no pencil)
Skin E11, 00, 000, R30 (no pencil)
Dress and Shoes R81, RV000, 0000 and R85 for flowers, Pomegranate pencil
Wings B01, 00, 000, 0000, R81, RV000, 0000

The pearl dots around the fairy are done with a Viva Pearl Pen.  I prefer this to Liquid Pearls, it doesn’t shrink and shrivel like Liquid Pearls does and the “pearls” are more round than pointy, much nicer to use and dries faster too.  Not sure who stocks it, I get mine from my local craft shop.

The gorge dragonfly I picked up whilst I was in the States last January – sheesh that seems like a million years ago already!  Flowers are natch from Wild Orchid Craftsclassic sweet rose, 30mm wild rose, sweetheart blossoms and white leaves (that I trimmed down a bit)

Last one.  The bling on the wings is Glamour Dust.  I use a Sakura glue pen to adhere the glitter to the image.
