I have a YT subbie who is such a sweetheart and always leaving me the kindest, most encouraging comments. She even has been going back and watching my old videos–like from 3 years ago when I didn’t even know how to edit! Now that is crafty love!
I want to surprise her with a little happy mail so I made up this card with one of The Greeting Farm images that I colored up recently as part of my Copic coloring series (you can see how the hair on this cute is colored up HERE). The Greeting Farm image is called Fairy Queen Anya, and I used the following Copic colors, concentrating on how to shade braided hair: E51, E53, E21, BV00, R20, G02, G16, Y13 and Y19. Her hair is colored with Y21, YR24, E37 with fine details added in with a Warm Gray Copic Multi-liner Pen in 0.3 pt. I also added dot details and little line lash details with a black Copic Multi-liner Pen in 0.1pt. Lastly, I fussy cut her out and then inked the edges with a Momento Tuxedo Black Marker.
For the card base I used a bright yellow card stock and then I used some fun floral glittered paper scraps in my stash and followed a great sketch from the MFT Sketch Challenge #232 HERE. The banner was hand cut after I pieced together a “sky” and “grass” with stripey scrap blue and green papers that I cut with an MFT Die-namics Grassy Hills Die (one of my all time favorite go-to dies). For the punny sentiment, I printed out, “Thank you fairy much!” on my computer using a free scripty font, Magnolia Sky.
