Sweet Pea Blog Hop Featuring the Artwork Of Caron Vinson


Welcome to the Sweet Pea Blog Hop...featuring the work of Caron Vinson. I used her image Blue Fairy in my card today. I had to go against the grain and make my "Blue" Fairy Pink! I colored her using Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils and I love the effect they give! For the embellishments, I used some glittery paper, some awesome flowers and the prettiest pink ruffled ribbon for May arts.

Thanks for using something other than copics to colour. I can't afford them so it is really nice when people use water colour pencils and such. I appreciate it!

I love how you colored this fabulous image! I just finished coloring several SPS very different from their normal colors thanks to what I saw earlier on this hop. All of your elements work together famously!
