Good morning! It's time for another sketch from Melissa at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog. Our sponsor this week is Lexi's Doodles and the image I'm using today is "Butterscotch Cupcake Fairy". As soon as I saw her, I knew she was the one...I couldn't wait to glitter up her wings and who doesn't love a cupcake with fudge icing piled high?!
When I chose the image, I really wasn't keeping the sketch in mind.... I had to figure out how I was going to make her work; I finally decided to cut her out. I was thinking she would be easy to cut out, but it ended up taking me a good 20 minutes! Note to self: Things always take longer than you think!
I included a close-up of her face and wings so you could see a bit more detail. Isn't her face pretty? Also, I colored the wings with a bit of pink and orange and blended it into the white before adding the glitter. They are really pretty in real life!
