Lots of Bubbles

It is time for another challenge at the Li'l Patch of Crafty Friends.  As always it is anything goes so pop your projects in for a chance to win prizes from our wonderful sponsors!

This time around I used Bubble Fairy Queen from Faery Ink.  She is colored with Copics.  I sat looking at her for a really long time just trying to decide what to color her. I seem to struggle when images have a lot of detail because I want to make sure everything goes together well.  I decided that a bubble fairy queen should have the same colors as a bubble in the sunlight.  That had me reaching for a lot of colors in the 0000 and 000 range.  I don't use them often, so it was a chance to give them a bit of a workout.  I colored her wings and bodice with a Wink of Stella clear pen.  You can just see the sparkle if you look closely enough.  It is gorgeous.  She was also printed on a piece of Cryogen white paper.  It also has a subtle sparkle to it.  Perfect for a fairy queen.  I added Stampin' Up! crystal effects to the bubbles in the image to give them a raised shiny sheen.  The circle in the picture that looks pink, is actually a piece of iridescent cellophane attached to a piece of white card stock.  It looks more like a bubble in real life.  The large enamel dots are melted clear pony beads.  It smells terrible when you bake them, but what a cost savings!

I am going to pop this fairy queen into the Wonderful Wendnesday challenge over at the Kraftin Kimmie Stamps challenge blog.

She is also going to float over to the All Sorts Challenge to use gems or pearls.

Suzy Bee's Challenge blog is Anything Goes with a twist of adding wings. So she and her dragon friend are going to fly on by and stop in to that challenge as well.

Since the Bubble Fairy Queen looks so lovely in her lavender, she is going to show off her lavender locks at the Alphabet Challenge this week.

Art by Miran always has an anything goes challenge, so the fairy queen told me she wanted to visit those beautiful ladies and have a chat.

I can't wait to see what you come up with, so come join us!
