Copic Creations ~ Copics & Pencils


  What is a Flower Fairy? Flower Fairies are tiny creatures (the biggest is only 20cm tall) that live in the bottom of gardens, the middle of grassy meadows, and on the edge of distant marshes. Wherever and whenever a seed sprouts, a Flower Fairy baby is born. Each Flower Fairy lives and sleeps in their chosen flower, plant or tree, and as this grows the fairy grows too. Each and every Flower Fairy is in charge of looking after their flower or plant; keeping it strong and healthy by making sure it has plenty of sunshine and water to drink, sweeping away dead leaves, and polishing flowers and stems … taken from Wikipedia

Yay!   Copics Creations Challenge No. 12 ~ Using Colored Pencils and OMS with your Copic Markers.   Our challenge is being sponsored by one of my very favorite art stamp companies, Janlynn Corporation.   Each DT member received a beautifully illustrated Stamps Happen Flower Fairy  stamp from Janlynn Corp. for this challenge.   My stamp is called Candytuft Flower Fairy, found here.




I really think I NEED to start collecting these stamps, I just LOVE them!   Each of the FF stamps are the product of English illustrator Cicely Mary Barker, you can read more about her here.  The DP used for my card is from the Basic Grey lemonade collection.  Along with my usual Copic Markers, I used two Prismacolor pencils ~ Dark Brown for the flower centers and the background and Spanish Orange for sunlight in the upper right corner. 

You MUST check out all the other Flower Fairy cards on the Copic Creations blog ~  It’s really cool to see all the fairies in a row, colored, of course, soooooo well by the entire CCDT!    You also MUST join us for this challenge!    Another awesome prize is being offered by our sponsor, Janlynn Corporation.   All the details can be found here.

Thanks for stopping in today!    It’s a short week for me, we’re off tomorrow to Minneapolis so I can FINALLY become officially CERTIFIEDin Copics by the one and only Marianne Walker herself!    YAY!
