So today is the first day of Spring!! Well...I don't know about anyone else, but it sure doesn't feel like Spring...more like Winter, brrrr...! I'm so ready for blooming flowers, the warmth and dreaming of Summer already...lol! I'm thinking of trying to plant flowers again this year, although they didn't ever take last year. I'm so tempted, but with our Oregon weather...I know better to wait! Plus it's been raining...which is normal for us, but it's also been snowing all over the state and down near the coast where we never get it! But enough of my rambling...Happy..errr...Spring!
Sooo...I noticed over at Emerald Faerie Garden Challenges they are having a DT call!! While I have never had the pleasure to use their lovely images before now, (they were put on my very LONG wish list of gotta have images...lol) I have participated in their fun challenges several times before and always enjoy seeing the amazing inspiration and talent that the DT comes up with!! So I decided I'm going to try out and purchased my very first image to use for the DT call and I have gotta say that I'm in love!! This little fairy was so much fun to color in!! Plus, I'm always a sucker for fairies!!
Here is my entry...and now keeping my fingers crossed!!
Not my usual color combo...I've been trying to step outside my creative box and try new color combos instead of my always safe, purples and pinks! I kinda like the way this turned out...although I think I could have done with a little less yellow...lol!
The beautiful little faerie image I used for my card today is called "Isabella" and can be found HERE! I added soft inked clouds to the background, popped her up on top with 3d foam and sparkled her up a bit with Stickles!
~♥ COPIC COLORS USED ♥~
All the flowers, flat back pearls and beautiful crystal stem are from "WOC"! I love the sparkling, whimsical look these crystal stems bring to any project! I got me some new border punches recently and have been having lots of fun playing with them...lol!
