Vision of Sugarplums

Christmas already? It just started getting warm in Missouri where I am and here I am thinking about Christmas. For this creation I chose to use the adorable Cute Christmas Fairies, not one, two or three but the whole collection! When I was trying to figure out which image I wanted to use I started resizing and then wow! Sugarplums.


I used a few techniques coloring this. For the hair, including the small images I used the flicking technique. I really like how it turned out especially on Fairy Bear but of course he is larger so I had more control of my flicking.


For the sweater and the bear I wanted it to look furry. The sweater I colored normally and then went over it with the blender adding dots of blending solution over the sweater. For the bear I colored in dots. After it was all colored I then went over it with the blender. Pictures just doesn't do the bear justice but I am pleased with how it turned out.


After everything was colored I took some white glue and paintbrush and flicked out my glue around the little fairies. I then sprinkled Ranger Rock Candy glitter on them. The flicks turned out really nice.
