CC Designs Swiss Pixie ATC

It has been a long time since I colored a CC Designs Swiss Pixie image. In fact it has been a long time since I have really colored any images. I had to stop coloring before my eye surgeries because I couldn't see well enough to do so and since the eye surgeries, I have been so busy trying different things that I really haven't picked up my color pencils that much.  Making this ATC made me realize how much I have missed coloring...and how much I need to practice my coloring!

I made this ATC for a challenge. The background is made using 4 colors of the Ranger Distress Inks. The flowers....well actually I am not sure what they a stamp by Stampin Up. I stamped it with Versafine black pigment ink. The sweet little pixie is by CC Designs. I needed her to be a bit smaller to fit my ATC so I stamped her on a piece of white cardstock, scanned her and saved her to my computer. Then I put her into a word document where I could change the size. Once I had her the size I needed, I printed her out and colored her with Prismacolor Color Pencils. Clouds were made using a die by Memory Box. I pop dotted the pixie and two of the clouds to give the ATC some dimension.

I'm feeling inspired now to pull out some of my other CC Design pixie stamps and do some more coloring!

Thanks for stopping by!
