Spring Fae Try To Ruin The Day

Greetings and welcome to the Guild Hall. Today the temperatures soared to record heights and it seems as though Spring may have finally come to stay. As I was cleaning the grounds, which were finally clear of snow, I was visited by a Spring fairy. She appeared suddenly, sitting upon the fence post swinging her legs and twirling her butterfly umbrella. I do not trust the fae, as they usually have something sinister planned, so I kept my eye on her while going about my business. 

This card was made for the Creative Card Crew “Spring” challenge that is happening now. Make a project that says spring and come play along with us for your chance to win a prize from our sponsors!

I started this card by colouring the Lacy Sunshine “Emily's Monarch Butterfly Umbrella” image using my Prismacolor pencils and carefully cutting her out. The sentiment I stamped using the My Creative Time “Wow! So Many Candles” set. I don’t usually use flowers on my projects, but I received those two as a “bonus gift” in one of my Unity stamp orders and thought with that orangey coloured brad they matched this project, so decided to slap those on there, earning myself +111 floral XP points.

On the inside I used some leftovers of the paper I cut for the front and stamped the sentiment using the Crafty Secrets “Glamour Girls” set.

The envelope was stamped with a butterfly from my vast Unity collection. I quickly added some colour to it using Distress Markers and my waterbrush.

This card will spring into the following challenges:

After about fifteen minutes she called out to me, “You seem thirsty. Perhaps you would like a refreshing beverage after all that hard work.”
“No thank you, fairy,” I replied, knowing better than to accept food or drink from a member of the fae.
She stared at me hard, her green eyes boring into mine. With a scowl, she disappeared, perhaps upset she didn’t find a victim for her trickery today.
