I've made a card to celebrate the winter solstice. I know I'm a day early! In my part of the world, winter solstice is on Dec. 21. Looking forward for the days to get longer afterwards. I like to work in my craft room under natural light and the days are just too darn short right now...sigh.
A closer look at this beautiful image I'm featuring.
This digital stamp is called Twilight Lily Fae, just one of the many gorgeous images designed by Sara Burrier that you can purchase from Crafts and Me.
I've used my coloured pencils to do the colouring this time. I've a collection pencils from various brands--Faber-Castell Polychromos and Art Grip, Derwent Coloursoft and Artists, Prismacolor Premier and Verithin. Oh I don't have complete collection from each...hee hee, just individual pencils. As you can see I don't stick to one brand. I use whatever colours are available and whatever works, although my preference is the Polychromos.
I've added cool-highlights glitter to the faerie's wings and gold glitter to the adornments in her hair.
