Gretel

When All That Scraps had their last sale I finally got the Swiss Pixie stamps that I've been wanting since they came out, and I had to play with them right away! I chose Gretel for this card:


The sketch was for a square card, but since I've been making a lot of square cards lately, I decided to stretch it to make an A2.

Gretel was colored entirely with Copics and I did my Stardust/waterbrush technique on her wing. Then I cut her out and popped her up on foam tape. I added tiny half pearls for her ponytail holder and the button on her dress.

Here's a close shot with flash to show off her Stardusted sparkly wing:
