It’s the beginning of a new week and I have to say, I’m feeling quite refreshed! The weather is absolutely gorgeous and I just want to run outside and garden! I’ll still have to wait a couple of weeks before I start that, but in the meantime, I have some wonderful things to keep me busy! Namely, I am now an official Groovy Gurl! I am a part of my friend Beth’s (from Stamp Insanity) brand new Design Team! I am SO excited about this!!! Her images are totally awesome (My Springtime Morgan card from the other day is one of her images), and I really can’t wait to share some rad new creations featuring her line!But, back to Spring! Sweet Pea Stamps is having a Customer Challenge and you need to make a card that screams Spring! Get all the deets on their blog. But here is my super bright submission: I don’t usually make square cards, but I’ve seen a lot of people over at Sweet Pea do it, and it seems to really work for the size of these images. This is one of ching-chou kuik’s amazing fairies called Love is Gone. Well here, love is just beginning with the start of a new season. I colored her in using my Spectracolor colored pencils, and I have to say… I had a blast doing this one! I think all of the shading came out fab! Click on any of my pictures to see them bigger! I love these flowers. The are made of this divine shimmery fabric and are from Creative Impressions. The purple swirl is a Sizzix die. I was thinking about adding some ribbon, but I just didn’t want to go overboard with all the details I was adding. I’m always so afraid that I’m going to take away from the fairy! But, I’m really pushing myself to channel my inner Randi Wall (isn’t she just the best?!?!), and add a ton of fabulous layers and textures. I’m getting there!So, my babies just woke up from their naps, so I think it’s time to go for a walk! Enjoy your day!!!
WHAT A FUN CARD! i can't wait for spring myself 🙂
