Fairy Klara and Graph'it

Hello!

We're going to our best friends house to celebrate her daughter's 4th birthday. Her name is Klara and yes she's the inspiration behind my Fairy Klara stamp set! :)

Lately I've been LOVING my Graph'it markers (a French brand) and at the beginning it did take me some getting use to (the small nib is a little different from Copics) but it didn't take long for me to get the hang of it so I'd thought I share how I colour. I want to stress that I'm NOT a professional, certified anything marker related...this is just how I colour! :)



I stamped Fairy Klara onto cardstock and let it dry.


For her skin I used two colours and I always start with the lighter shade and then add my darker shade and then go back with the lighter shade and blend. The more shades you have the easier it is to blend.


I forgot to add the 'blush' so I went back and did that which brings me to a tip...work in small areas because once the colours 'dry' it is difficult to go back and blend some more...that's exactly what happened to me with the blush (on her cheeks).


Moving on to her hair...starting with the lightest shade...


...and now I'm adding my medium and darkest shade. And then I go back with the lightest and blend.





I use the blender to lighten any areas and I also used it on her skirt to create polka dots.


I cut her out, stamped the wings onto the yellow gingham paper, cut that out and paper pieced her together. The sentiment is a SRM sticker.



I think Klara will like her birthday tag! :)
