A Bit Of Spring.....

Hello dear blogging friends: I'm so tired of this cold and gray days, I long for Spring and Summer, of days full of sunshine and warmth, right now it's 4 degrees here in my town, the weather channel says it feels like -8!!!!! Brrrr!!  
I wanted to make a card that will give me a bit of a taste of Spring, which is kind of almost here and imagine the Fairies fluttering about in my Tulips and Hydrangeas.  I will play along with a few challenges at the end of this post.


This dreamy image is from a company named 49 & Market, I bought this set plus a couple of more sets with the Faeries from Ebay and today, I searched for a website that would sell them but couldn't find any. There are some that sell some 49 & Market stamps but, even if I found several places that sell their stamps, I couldn't find any that sell the Fairy ones.
I stamped the image onto a piece of die cut watercolor paper with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed it then, colored it with Sakura Koi watercolors and a small brush.
The pattern paper is from a retired line from Lili of the Valley, the Vellum rose on the bottom corner was die cut with Vellum and colored with Distress Inks and a sponge dauber.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The sentiment and the image on the corner are from the same set.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

Hugs from Maria.

I delight in your fairy playing in the lavender! Such ultra-cute heart paper and a pretty vellum rose in the corner. Love, love the pink and green, all fresh and springy. I would grow weary of such cold weather, too. It's not been bad here this year, but I'm ready for spring and all the fun that goes with it!
