The card is made, as usual, in 110 lb white cardstock. The front panel is white too, but I embossed some holly in white powder. Then I apply Stormy sky distress ink all over the from panel. I distressed the edges and glue it to the card.
I stamped with black ink the sentiment and I make it look as if it was printed in a piece of parchment. At least that was my intention. I draw it and colored it with color pencils and then I added some stickles.
The pixie was quite difficult for me to paint. I am still learning how to use my markers and she has a very thin legs and arms. Anyway, the result is here and I think it was worth all the extra carefulness.
These are the colors of the Pixie using Spectrum noir markers:
Skin: FS1, FS4, TN2, TN3, TN4, FS8.
Hair: TN8, TN4, OR1, GB3.
Dress and Hat: DR7, DR5, DR3, DR2, CR7.
