Holly Fairy

There seem to be wonderful new digi-artists to discover each day. Another new-to-me is Michelle Perkett, who has made beautiful rubber stamps for some time that I coveted, but which weren't easily available in the UK. Michelle specialises in detailed, glamorous angels - this one is the Holly Fairy, though I think she's more of a poinsettia fairy :).

I've followed the sketch for Sketch & Stash, who want new and old stash listed: New stash is the image and the card candy (bought at the NEC). Old stash is the Stampin Up papers I've used and the watercolour paints that I used for the background.

I'm also entering this card is Stampin' for the Weekend's Challenge, which is to use the traditional Christmas colours of red, green and gold. I like the way the traditional colours still work with a less than traditional image here.

Image coloured with Copics on a watercolour background, Stickles, Glossy Accents and Flowersoft "snow" added. Papers from Stampin' Up, card candy from Craftwork Cards.


  1. She is beautiful. Love the colors. The layout and the words are wonderful.

  2. Hi Anne. I've just been having a catch up on what I've missed this week. You've created some gorgeous cards. I hope your eyes are feeling a lot better now.
    I thought mine were going funny when I saw white dots floating about and then realised you had got snow falling!!!!!
    This angel is gorgeous. The words are beautiful.
    Have a great weekend.
