A Copic Fairy and Video

I finally have gotten around to coloring up my April release for Whimsy Stamps.  Her name is Wishes.  
 I am all over the board with my art supplies and tend to jump from one to another so it was a blast to pull out my copics and just color. It is so relaxing for me and reminds so much of coloring in my coloring book as a kid (but without my lil' brother sitting next to me breaking them in half and ripping the papers off of them!! ~oh the horror!!~)
I filmed the process and have shared a lot of techniques in this one. Hair, skin, translucent clothing and some colorless blender / rubbing alcohol techniques. Here's a few close ups of those techniques:

The shimmer in her dress was achieved by using my version of twinkling H20's (stay tuned for future tut) after coloring. Same with her hair. The wings got a coat of Winsor and Newton Iridescent Medium

I hope you enjoy it!

Copic colors for dress
Sorry I don't have color swatches at the moment for rest but they are all shown in the video. 
Thanks for watching =0)

Hey Dana,

This was super fun to watch, and I totally enjoyed hearing you laugh at yourself...makes me feel a little bit more normal. Thanks for sharing your talents. Gorgeous stamp, and beautifully colored.
