Whispy a Fairy

Good Evening Bloggers...

I hope that you've all had a lovely Easter break. I know that seems ages ago now but I'm only just getting back into a routine. My kids and I went back to school and work on Monday and normality seems to be setting in fast.

I had today off work to take my eldest son to have the wires taken out of his broken wrist. No....I was a big wimp and didn't dare look in case I fainted and embarrassed both myself and him. lol. 2 more weeks in a pot and then it's off for good.

Onto my card for this evening. 
It's another of Krista's amazing images. This time it's Whispy a Fairy, she's such a cutie.

I really enjoyed colouring her. I'm still relatively new to copics but was pleased with how she turned out, especially the hair. I really struggle to get hair to look right. I've added some shading with prisma colours but was a bit heavy handed so don't look too closely :)

Here's a close up.

I think she's going to be an image that I'll keep on coming back to.
I've added some stickles to the dragonflies for a bit of bling but it's not really come out well in the photos.

And finally a sideways view.
