Poinsettia Fairy

Hi! I have another Christmas Card to show you today using a gorgeous image from chin-chou kuik's plate 60. This one is called Poinsettia Fairy. All four of the images on this sheet are stunning and I intend to make Christmas cards with all of them (although they can be purchased individually, too).

I almost always get my color palette from the paper I choose, and this was no exception. I colored the image with Copics and then added some sparkle with both Stickles and a Sakura Clear Stardust glitter pen. The background is one sheet of paper - I cut a slit in the paper that is covered up with the image panel and cut along the edge of the ornament so I could slide the image slightly underneath it. The sentiment is cut from another piece of paper in the same line, then I went over the letters with the glitter pen.
