Hello! I have one of my latest Sweet Pea Stamps creations for you today. This image is called Midnight Waiting and it is from ching- chou kuik’s Fantasy Art Collection, Plate #29. I was really inspired by one of the Sweet Pea design team members, Randi Wall. She posted an awesome tutorial, click HERE to see it. Now, I don’t use Copics as you all know by now, so I adapted the look to fit the coloring tools that I do use. I used chalks, colored pencils, a dash of Stickles and a dab of Stardust pens. You’ll see that I gave the fairy a gray wash, sort of like Randi’s. Here’s a close up: I wanted the fairy to be very soft. He dress is bold, but her skin, her hair, her wings… soft. Please click on the pictures to see them bigger. Although my version is obviously quite different from Rand’i’s, you can see that the inspiration came from her. I love the look she came up with so I needed to make my own version! You can see the sparkle a bit better here. So there you have it! Now I am off to make some more cards!Hey! By the way, did you know that Smeared and Smudged now has a store? You can go there and buy some crazy cool stamps designed by our leader Terra and her sis Tori!

WOW, amazing. Blue is one of my most favorite colors. I like how you didn't jump on the Copic bandwagon.

The variegation of blues is gorgeous!! I always thought I was more of a red/orange gal, but you pinned me a long time ago as a blue girlie. I guess you're right! Beautiful job!
I love this! The outfit coloring is amazing! Great work!
