Hi!  I know Cheryl titled her most recent post Wish so I called this one Wishes.  Hehe.  I think I'm getting the hang of using digis especially now that I have a heat gun to set the ink.  It works so much better than my hairdryer!  Though I think I tend to size them a bit on the larger size but it's easier for me to color.  Anyway, thought I'd try the current challenge at Saturated Canary #17 -- May Flowers and Paper Sundaes Challenge #120 -- Things with Wings.

I know this looks kind of bright.  Haha.  I think I wanted to try using colors I don't use often like orange and then blue hair.  Plus I had matching blue and orange flowers, so why not?  This image is Fairy from Saturated Canary.  Love her long flowy hair.  So then I chose simple papers.  I added lots of flowers, maybe I may have over did it?  It was kind of hard to stop adding flowers here and there.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Added stickles to her wings of course, some butterflies and rhinestones too.  Oh, I did use my Perfect Layers rulers to mat the image too.  And I am trying not to be too dependent on sketches.  It takes me a long while to think of my own layout, but the process can be fun as long as I don't over think where I should put things.  Hopefully, I don't get too frustrated.

Thanks for reading!

Eva this is amazing! I absolutely love all of the colours...she looks amazing with her blue hair! Fantastic layout and you are right - those flowers go PERFECTLY! :D

Ha! Cuz I can't think of titles for my posts and just use whatever sentiment is on the card. I think the large digis look great! Fabulous coloring! Love the hair! Pretty layout too. My desk gets so messy even trying to follow a sketch, I think I get too wishy washy and pull everything out and then end up using the bare minimum.
