Cupcake Fairy...

 It has always produced anxiety for me to to even attempt  a darker complexion and black hair- but I'm really proud of how this turned out!  Once I finished coloring with Copics, I used an ArtQuest Fine Liner Calligraphy pen to apply Duo Glue and  gold foil to the cupcake stars and silver foil to the shoulder straps.  The landscape, or  "Poke Leaf", was then Zentangled around my image using a Micron 01 pen and Copics.
iCopic Weekly Challenge #41: "Skin Tones"
Copic Creations Challenge #55:  "Landscape Design"
Anything Goes Challenge from Come and Get it Challenges

IMAGES: The Cupcake Fairy is by Mo Manning – the “Poke Leaf” is a hand drawn Zentangle design.
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the image panel; base CS is from my endless stash; Designer Paper is from the Basic Grey “Oliver Paper Pad”
INKS: The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics:
IMBELLISHMENTS: Lace ribbon, light blue button brad, two wooden star buttons and embroidery floss all from my endless stash.


  1. You shouldn't be scared at all because you colored the skin tone so beautifully! Thanks so much for playing with iCopic this week! I hope to see you back next time.
