Preparing for Spring

I just adore this stamp!Apart from being cute I’m really taken with the idea that a little fairy paints all the flowers.She’s called Nature’s Little Helper and she’s available at the Artistic Stamper.

I have used Promarkers to colour her and applied clear glaze pen over her wings (as a change from glitter) and the paint parts of the image for that shiny wet paint look.This close up demonstrates it better:

The papers are K & Co and the card is Papermania Textured.I have used the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser around the edges.I’ve also inked around the edges of the base card and image using a mixture of Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and Angel Pink Memento ink.I created the flowers using the Flower Martha Stewart Punch and Stamp Set.I made the leaves by cutting a punched flower shape.Green pearls have been added to the centres.I’ve used a length of grosgrain ribbon with a charm tied on using co-ordinating  thread.

These are the challenges I used  for inspiration:

Stamp Something : ‘Pink Somethings’
