Things with Wings….

So I have been taking a couple of colouring classes with the lovely Clare Rowlands recently – she has been over at a paper place not too far from where I live. I cannot tell you how much it helps to have some show you how to colour properly…I have watched mountains of vids on youtube etc – havent we all? and they are good but the real thing is so much better. So now I am hooked on Copics….which is just as well since That Craft Place now stock them!!!

The challenge this time is “Things with Wings”……I immediately thought…Fairies….and it was very nearly a snow fairy but I thought I would avoid Christmas for a little bit longer, although I know it is on the way…here is my project….IMG_2874wtmk

She is a Mo Manning image, coloured with Copics. I threw in a little frantage, some hand rolled flowers, lots of Memory Box dies, some Joy Dies, some seam binding and a sprinkle of pearls….  here are some close ups….

Here is a closer picture of the frantage – this is Shabby White….IMG_2878wtmk

And a close up of those hand rolled flowers, it also shows a close up of the colouring – I have used a coloured pencil to add a little depth to the shadows int he folds othe dress here, and if you look closely at the wings you can see how fabulously the Copics pens blend together – here I have used a very soft aqua and a very soft lilac to give the wings some irridescence….

I do hope you like this project – I loved making it to share with you. If you would like to take part in this weeks challenge, head on over to That Craft Place where I know Lisa, Danny and Lynn will be happy to help you chose items for your project….and when you have finished why not share it with us and enter the That Craft Place Challenge over at http://thatcraftplaceblog.blogspot.co.uk/….we look forward to seeing your finished items…..
