Spring Fairy and Flowers

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying the weekend.

I have a design today using Chocolate Baroque's gorgeous new Spring Fairy Collection.  



The background is a sheet that I printed from CB's beautiful Leafy Brocade Printable Papers.   The  May Fairy was stamped on water colour paper with Cobalt Archival ink, coloured with Tom Bow markers and cut out.   I added holograph glitter to parts of her dress.  I coloured the die cut flowers with Distress Inks.

Dies:  Crealie Creative Flowers CL CF 20 & CL CF 19 and Memory Box - Pierson Corner. 



Thanks for your visit and have a great week,
Shirley

Wow, this fairy looks stunning against the backing paper, almost as though they were made to go together. I love the gorgeous colours you've used and the way the flowers match the colours in her wings.

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Your Cobalt stamping is so effective against the patterned paper & I love the way you've placed with the wings following the curve of the leafy pattern behind her. The colours of her wings are picked up beautifully in those flowers & I love the aqua of her dress & how that colour appears in the background as well as the flowers. A lovely piece of designing which really catches the eye. Your use of the Pierson Corner die works wonderfully with the patterned paper…… the more I looked the more I saw!

Hey Shirley, thanks for the lovely email :) I will reply soon. I like how you matched the wings of the faerie with the flowers. Beautiful background paper too. The purple and green combo reminds me of so many wild flowers that I know. I can't wait to see them again!

That lovely printed paper and the die cut flowers work beautifully with the fairy in her pretty turquoise blue dress, and that MB corner die is just perfect behind the flowers. A gorgeous card Shirley. Hope you had a good weekend. x
