Birthday Fairy

This image was created by Morgan Fitzsimons and it's available at Scrapbook Stamp Society.  I saw someone do a really lovely job on a mermaid's tail the other day and it made me really want to try the effect she used.  Thank you, for the inspiration, Carole.

I colored this with Copic markers.  I used Stickles on the flower centers and coated the wings with Glamour Dust and a tiny bit of blue glitter to add a little boost.

The beautiful ribbon is hand dyed pure silk from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I'm very frugal with that.  It was a tad pricey.  The papers are digi papers from Bearly Mine Designs.  They are running a great sale right now.

I don't recall who the die is from.  Of course, I've gotten rid of the packaging.

Copics:  BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG02, BG10, E00, E01, E11, E25, E27, E29, E33, E37, R11, R22, V01, V04, Y21
