Paper Makeup's Melody in 2 Challenges!

I used Paper Makeup's Melody in the Die Cuts R Us sketch challenge and the copic color challenge. I LOVE this little fairy and the birdie that she is singing to is so sweet! This color combo made me feel very springy so I got out the flower soft and the butterflies and away we went! I added the calla lilies around the oval frame and then I used the butterfly die cuts to fill in and make the oval that was shown in the sketch that can be seen here. I love doing challenges and I have over 200 copic markers... so I am always looking to pout them to good use and the copic color challenge lets me do just that! I LOVE to color and going to copic certification really helped me learn how to use the colors that compliment and contrast to make the best of the markers and the images that I am working with! I used Shimmerz on her wings and on some of the butterflies
for the embossed areas. Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful butterfly filled day!

Ooooh, I love your butterfly border and how you colored Melody. :) She's the custom fairy that I got to design and name for a PMS contest last September and I just love seeing what everyone creates with her! :)
