It's another Once Upon a Wednesday at The Pixie Cottage and this week we have the theme of "Wrap It In Ribbon!" and of course we have a super sketch if you'd like to play with that, I chose to do both the theme and the sketch this week.

This was this week's fabulous sketch

This is a pretty unusual image (a fairy on a slug) but it is cute and I'm glad I finally inked it up! I added Smooch Illuminate paint to her wings, wand and shoes for a bit of sparkle but it didn't really show up too well in the photo.
We hope that you'll come along and play with us at The Pixie Cottage this week :)
