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.
