Inky Pinkies- Joyful Serenity Fairy

Hello there, time for my newest Inky Pinkies project. I really enjoyed making this one. A lot of people are coloring these fairies in beautiful pastel colors (remember mine from last week?). I decided I wanted to do something different and colored this one with darker colors. Blacks, greys and a deep purple. I just love how she turned out. 

This one is called Serenity Joyful Fairy. I colored her with my Spectrum Noir Markers (Pin-able Palette below) and used my kids' watercolor paints for the background. They thought it was funny that I was borrowing their art supplies for a change. 

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added some metallic paint to the edges. We were given some of it at the Kit and Clowder retreat- it's a really fun paint to use. I love how it breaks up the darkness of the purple flowers and adds a little shine to the white one. 

The ribbon is old Stampin Up from my stash and the washi tape came in one of the Studio Calico Project Life kits. I think it's my favorite washi tape ever. It's just so pretty!
