Hello, and welcome!
Do you believe in fairies?.....elves?......gnomes?.......sprites? Let's say that I would like to believe that such poetically imaginative beings co-exist with us in this lovely world of ours......but.....and let me make this very clear......I do believe in Father Christmas! Not a shadow of a doubt that he is real......nope......don't try to dissuade me......he is definitely, at this very moment, preparing to bring me something fabulous for next Christmas...hahaaa!
And he's got only 298 days to get it ready.....just sayin'....heehee!!!
We've got a fabulous challenge at Card Crafter's Circle this week....yaaaaaay!
(Elves, Fairies, Gnomes, Pixies, Sprites, etc)
This week, our sponsor is MICHELLE PERKETT STUDIOS! Michelle skilfully presents a huge collection of mermaids, fairies, people, and with various images in between! They will delight you, so we hope you avail yourself of her designs!
Our random prize winner will receive their choice of one of the gorgeous images showcased by our design team in the challenge post! ( A Hint: Dream Dragonfly is not available in the etsy shop!) We are thrilled to have MPS sponsoring our challenges... because the images are so beautiful... and because they will always bring a smile to your face!
As always, members of the Design Team were given some truly lovely images to use.......I chose this sweet Magical Birthday Sprite
I started with a white card base and placed a piece of pink card stock as the bottom layer.....the teal/blue flower paper, and the yellow paper are freebies from a magazine......I wish I could get more of them, because I love 'em! The yellow label is cut with a Spellbinder die......
Isn't she gorgeous? I really, really like this pretty sprite....how could you not believe she's real?...I coloured her with my 2 pink copics....yep....still own only the two....and Promarkers. The little pink embossed circles are the "waste" from the punched border that runs under the image (Nellie's Multi-border).....well, they were far too pretty to put in the bin...hahaaa!
I found a pack of Glitterations in the 50p bin at The Range....result!.....and used a Marvy le Plume pink marker to change the silver glitter on this swirl and the flower, below......
The flowers are from Prima, and I added the little pearls.....all Sprites should have some pearls about them at all times......fact........
A teeny butterfly edged with a bit of glitter.......butterflies are attracted to Sprites......another fact.......
See what I mean?
We all need a little magic in our daily lives, so why not help it along and join in the fun by creating something pretty?
