This is the birthday card I made for my sister earlier this year. I let her have some requests as such and what she listed was aqua and pink colours, Victoria secret themed and bold.
I instantly regretted asking, but what could I do but try to make something along those lines. I decided on a cute fairy, by Krista Smith of Saturated Canary and coloured it in with copics, and added sparkles and liquid pearls to the wings. I have coloured a couple of images since which is an improvement, but I was quite happy with this when I did colour it in. Everything is a learning curve, right? (I really must get cracking on those colouring classes I bought soon after I coloured this image!) I punched out loads of butterflies using the Tim Holtz die in various aqua and pink papers and used rows of pearls to give them bodies. I used a deep pink, almost red to frame the various elements and punched out S and V, my sisters initials coincidently! I have used flowers and big pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts, the lace I believe I purchased at Bikuben and the ribbon may be the Hobby House.
And a close up of the colouring:
