I'm So Blue! - But in a Good Way!

Hey all... I had a blast with this next Sweet Pea stamp. I love her design and coloring her was so much fun. 
The stamp is Light of Beautitude. I colored her with the following Copics:

V12, 15, 17 for the purple portion of the gown.
B12, 14, 16, 18. was used for the blue portions of her gown
BG11, 13, 15, 18, B12, YG11 for the Scales and flowers.
E0000, E000, E00, R20 for the Skin
E13,15,17,18 for her hair - On the left side near the candle, I added Y000 in the light areas.
V0000, V000, V12, B0000, 000, 12 for the wings.
G12, 14, 16, 17 for the leaves at the base of the candles.
Y11, 13 for the flame, and Y0000 for the glow of the candle

Once I had her colored up, I started adding the stickles. For the dots on the hair and gown, I used Mermaid Stickles. For the wings and the hair, I lightly added a bit of crystal Stickles - to get a nice thin layer of  shimmer - it gives a bit more than the clear spica, but still lets the Copic Colors come through. I did the same to the edging on the blue gown. The flames and the belt are gold stickles.

The paper is from KaiserCraft Utopia Collection and the blue is Coredinations. The sentiment is a Flourishes stamp and I LOVE their fonts. It is stamped on AC white cardstock with Versafine and Clear embossed.

I am entering this as a second entry in the Copic Creations Challenge for Sparkle. I think I achieved that! I am also entering it into the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Anything Goes. I thought about entering it into the Technique Challenge on SCS - which was painting with Stickles... but Since I relied on Copics for the colors, I didn't think it quite qualified. :-(

Thanks for Stopping by. Hope to see you again soon.
