Spring into Action

As the days grow longer, the weather has become increasingly more pleasant. As I was putzing around the Guild Hall grounds, trying to get things cleaned up after the melt I noticed some geese flying overhead, returning from their trip to the south. The biggest sign that Spring was on the way however, was when I spotted a pink flower fairy fluttering around the garden, gracefully planting seeds that would bloom into a rainbow of colour in a couple months.

This week the theme at Wicked Wednesday is Spring is in the Air. Make an ATC with a springy theme for a chance to win a prize from our sponsors, A Day For Daisies and Nana Vic’s Digitals.



For my first ATC I used an image from Nana Vic’s Digitals. I coloured it using Prismacolor pencils and inked the edges with Distress Ink. The sentiment was stamped with the Crafty Secrets “Couple of Cuties” set.

This ATC will cheep into the following challenges:

For my second ATC I used the A Day For Daisies “Curly Flower Fairy” image and coloured it using Prismacolor pencils. The leafy things I stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Critters Down Under” set. I then cast a sparkle spell using my Wink of Stella wand to add some glitter to the leaves and the fairies wings.

Click to en-biggen and see the sparkley spell.
This ATC will spring into the following challenges:

Oh Crystal, you may have double exp for the wonderful ATC's that you created for your 'Spring is in the Air' challenge. I adore the soft hints of colour with your prismacolor pencils on the little vintage boy and girl with their ducklings. Great job on the tattered edges and the ATC is stained beautifully to create that vintage feel. Thank you.
Cute! Cute! Cute! is your little fairy from 'A Day For Daisies'
