Springtime fairy



I'ts Saturday morning so time for our new challenge at Allsorts and today it's my turn to host the theme so of course as it's now March I had to choose something Spring related so it's rather predictably 'Spring is in the Air'. Our sponsors this week are Kraftyhands and Deedeeds Digis

I was a lucky girl recently and won the challenge at Chocolate Baroque and one of the stamp sets I chose as my prize was the Summer Fairy set, but with a bit of artistic licence it's becoming Spring. I think the flowers are Alstroemeria or even Freesias, but again with artistic licence I think I can get away with them being crocuses.

I stamped the fairy in black archival, used Pan Pastels to create the background, stamped the flowers and coloured with Wink of Stella which I also used for the fairies wings plus a bit of glitter so there is some nice sparkles going on. I also sponges some sun rays glimmering down the scene.

  9. This is beautiful Brenda and the gorgeous colour certainly shouts " spring". There is actually the feel of expectation in the air now, the primroses are out under the hedges, the daffs about to burst and the crocuses (in pots this year to stop the rabbits eating them) are up and out...yay for spring!! xx
