Garden Fairy

I colored another one of Mo's beautiful digital fairy images. This time I used a shimmery paper to print on, and I quickly embossed it right out of the printer. It's a really beautiful effect, just like a real stamp! Since I couldn't use my colored pencils on this paper, I colored it with Copics. And let me tell you I love the way Copics work on this paper! It's a bit different from regular paper because it doesn't require as much blending. BUT, the result is a lot different too. If you click on the pictures you can see what I mean. It's more of a water color-y and textured look because the Copics 'push' the previously laid down color a little rather than blend totally into each other. It's kind of hard to describe, but it's a fun experiment to try something new.
I really love the look of it though, and since embossing printed images is easiest on shimmery paper, I suspect I'll be using this technique quite a bit.
The paper is from the new Memory Box 'Enchanted' collection (perfect for a magical fairy).

Hope you like it, thanks for dropping by!
