I finally jumped on the pocket letter bandwagon! Oh yeah I did!

20150330_143448It took me several days, but I was able to assemble everything I wanted to include, including the little gifts in each pocket.  The part that took the longest were the three stamped images from C.C. Designs–Swiss Pixie, Cupid, and Garden Party Olivia. Obviously Pixie started out as a fairy and Cupid also started off with wings, so for Olivia, I added butterfly wings using a Martha Stewart Large Monarch Butterfly Punch.

For Swiss Pixie, I just had fun with Copic coloring, adding some sparkle to the dandelion with glitter glue, and creating a patterned dress with a 0.3 pt Copic pen and a white Gelly Roll pen.  The following are the Copic colors:
20150330_143438Skin: E50, 51, and 53 and R11 for blush
Blue Hair: BG70, 10 and 13
Dress and shoes: RV00, 10, 52
Wings: B00 and 01

For Garden Party Olivia, I paper pieced her dress, shoes, and wings with a yellow and lavender polka dot paper. Again I added glitter glue to her wings to continue that magical sparkly look.  The Copic colors are:
Skin: E50, 51, and 53 and R11 for blush
Purple hair and dress sash: BV00, 02 and 04

For Cupid, I paper pieced her dress and shoes with a fun orange and brick colored hounds tooth pattern.  With Cupid I also decided to test out a new skin color combination–using a purple undertone for the shadows.  I think this adds a darker and more realistic coloring.  I need to practice more, but I really like the different look! The Copic colors are: Skin: E50, 51, 53 and BV00 and R20 for blush
Auburn Hair: E97, 99 and 29
