Lily the Fairy!

TGIF!!! Today I wanted to share a sketch challenge card!! Sketch challenges are one of my favorite things to play around with, and I haven't had much time doing ones while they are CURRENT lately so last night I made it a point to! You can see the sketch, above, from Jacksonbelle, and here is my card:

I just love the Enchanted Lily plate by Pink Cat Studio!! These super-cute images are available at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, along with a bunch of other PCS plates {the new Sporty Billy among them!}. The BEST customer service around too.

I stamped Lily in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with --- wait for it --- COLORED PENCILS AND GAMSOL!!! Yes, I deviated from Copics on this one, I thought I'd shock you with a change, LOL. I did do her skin with Copics because it never turns out right with pencils. I added Diamond Stickles to the Swiss Dots on the background piece and also to the inside of her wings. Fun fun! Can't go wrong with pink and glitter, am I right?

Thanks for visiting today! Hope you all have a great weekend!
