Fairy Abigail

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing my latest project for Live and Love Crafts using the beautiful and brand new papers by Reprint. I love how soft and whimsical these are... they go perfectly with my little Fairy Abigail colouring by CC Designs.
Even though she's wearing a lot of green and yellow, I used the colour wheel to find a nice complementary colour (opposite each other in the colour wheel) to do my embellishments. By using opposing colours in the colour wheel you can create maximum contrast and stability to the eye.

Here are the copic colours I used to colour her up:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E50, E53, E43, E44Dress/Wings: G00, BG13(w), BG49 (w), BG78 (w), Y11, Y15(w), Y17, E15, E18 
Background: Sennelier L'Aquarelle (I have the 14 pack - these allow you to add more colour with less layers of ink which is what you need for copic card)

Hope you have enjoyed my little piece of inspiration today and hope to see you playing with colour a little more in your shabby projects! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Video Tutorial :: Watercolour Backgrounds

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing with you a fun little tutorial :) I have taken Fairy Abigail by CC Designs and coloured her up with my copics, and then have done a nice soft watercolour background around her using paints. This technique is really difficult to do with copics as you generally get quite a hard line.
