Wee Blossom Girl

Hello again Gang!  If you’re looking for my Power Poppy post - please scroll down :)  

There’s a brand new set of images being released from A Day for Daisies today!  They are SO pretty.  Full of spring, love and good things.  

Today I played with this pretty - Fairy Flower Waiting.  Wouldn’t it be great for a little girl card, or even for an expecting mom because of the pretty dress?  With the warm weather we’ve been having, I must have been craving spring, so I pulled out some new papers from Echo Park - Fine and Dandy and played with spring in mind.  We’ve probably got two months left of winter or more...but a girl can dream :)  

I printed her onto XPress It Blending card stock and gave her lots of vibrant Copic colour to go with these sweet whimsical papers.  Because she’s a long and narrow image I thought that some assorted fishtale banners would look great.  I sewed a few passes with my sewing machine to hold the banners on and left the tails of the sewing loose for a free-spirited feel.  

Then it’s just a little bit of twine and a button and it’s finished!  

Here’s the Copics I used below.  

Take a look at the rest of the new images with the beauty the team has to show you.  And, we hope you can still jump in to play in our Ombre Challenge, still open a wee bit longer!  

Christine (you are here)

SO sweet, Christine!!! I love your coloring, have you ever considered doing some step-by-step tutorials on coloring for people like me who are challenged when it comes to coloring? I know I would learn a lot from you--I know you are busy but if you ever could try one, I know I'd learn a lot!!! Thanks for considering this...

I LOVE this sweet and uplifting and positive card, so lovely!!! The colors just sweep away any doldrums!!! :)

Bless you!!!

Simply lovely Christine, this colors are so fresh and beautiful. I don't know about you but for me, the older I get the less I like the cold temperatures so, I'm eagerly waiting for Spring to arrive. Your beautiful image of this sweet fairy just lifts my spirits and warms my heart.
Thank you so much for sharing.
