Stamps R Us-Sparkle and Scallops

OWH Blog Hop Post HERE- Blog candy to be drawn 11/15 at 6PM

My Blogging group Stamps R Us has issued a challenge: Sparkle(s) and Scallops.  The challenge is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique. We were allowed to pick any image from the store- and what better for a sparkly challenge but a Fairy image. 

Here is another view of the card:

 The image is a digi and I watercolored it with Soft Sky. I dabbed a tiny bit of R22 on the flowers to mimic the flowers in the bacground Basic Grey DSP.  I touched up the edges of the fairy with B00.  I painted over the top part of the skirt and the inside of the wings with Creative Inspirations Paint.  I also added a touch of that sparkly paint around the image. 
 I painted the flowers with Soft Sky for the larger flowers and used Copic V02 for the smaller punched flowers.  I painted over all of them with Creative Inspirations Paint. I added a Dew Drop to the center of the flower in a color that mimics the DSP. The bottom flower was embossed in the Cuttlebug. I decided to take creative liberties with the scallops and used my notch punch.
  The layer under the main image is from the Technique Junkies called 'Crystal Ice' with a touch of Soft Sky by Stampin Up.
Stamps: Digi by The Stamping Boutique, sentiment RainDropEcho.

TIP: I learned a little tip from Chris Dickenson- if you have a piece of special paper or a technique- cut out a portion from behind the image and you will have that for another project- I did that for the Crystal Ice layer.
