It’s the Birthday Fairy …




. . .  50th Birthday, that is!    🙂   

I’ve actually done this card before a little over a year ago in a much nicer teal color theme – but, my daughter needed a New Year’s Eve 50th Birthday card for her husband’s aunt, so I thought the black and silver would be appropriate!  



This voluptuous fairy is by Mo Manning, and perfect, in my mind, for a 50th birthday fairy!   

See what those of you who are under 50 have to look forward to?!!!    hehehe



Lots of silver stickles on this one.   I’ve colored her dress using mainly T (Toner Gray) Copic markers ~ my favorites.     Here’s a quick closeup of the dimension added with the separately colored and cut wings.



 I love the combination of silver and black – especially for New Year’s Eve!   How exciting it would be to have birthday on this day! 

Thanks for dropping in today!

  12. Mary,

    I’m a follower and quite an admirer of your amazing cards. I’m thinking of buying some markers. Do you use TOMBOW markers?, I do see COPIC’s here and there, however, they are out of my budget, BUT, I’m willing to BUY the flesh tones. Which flesh tones would YOU start me with, and WHERE can I purchase them?…..stop by my blog to see my “water color” painting. Thank You, Denise
