Lets make things clear!

Morning everyone, my goodness its a chilly one today!
Not sure this little Wisteria Fairy is going to be warm enough!
I made this card recently for my Mums birthday she is a very special lady and does such a lot for me and wanted a special card, so I chose this image from Aurora Wings, I don't know what draws me to images like this but I keep going back to fairies and Angels, I guess I just believe!
The technique I have used to create her transparent dress is very much like the technique by
Mila Popova over on the Spectrum Noir blog you will find her tutorial here.
I used my trusty blendable pencils in these colours:

Skin: 005, 008, 009, 088, 089
Dress and flowers in her hair: 076, 078, 081, 035
Hair: 084, 100, 106
Wings:047, 079, 075, 078
Shoes: 078, 079
As you can see, I tried to make her look as if her dress was transparent and wispy! And this was very easy to do thanks to Mila's fabulous tutorial.
Thanks for stopping by today, keep warm!
Happy Colouring
