Welcome to Spring

Hello there,
well hopefully Spring is only around the corner now! After all the snow and rain it's been great to have a few sunny days.

This is my card for the April Fairy and Unicorn Challenge, this month it's anything goes with the option of Spring is in the air. This month we're sponsored by the amazing IkesArt, and I've chosen the Seeds image which you can buy here.

What I used

White 8x8 card blank.
Green Tonic Craft Perfect card stock.
Tonic Leaves embossing folder brushed with Memento New Sprout ink.
IkesArt Seeds images coloured as follows:
Promarkers: Black, Leaf and Grass.
Spectrum Noirs: LY1, GB6 and TB3.
The sentiment came free with a magazine and is stamped using Memento Cottage Ivy with a border stamped using a Card-io leaf stamp using the New Sprout ink.
I finished it off with a green ribbon bow from my stash.

I hope you like it, please leave a comment if you can - all are greatly received!

Girl and unicorn doll

Here's another card for the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge, this month the theme is anything goes with the option of all about moms - as it's Mother's Day this month. We're sponsored by the wonderful Lacy Sunshine and I've chosen Chloe's Rainbow and Unicorn - Sweet Urchin Collection stamp. I thought this would be a nice image to use for Mother's Day or for a birthday.

What I used:

Promarkers: Cool Grey 1, 2 and 4; Lemon.
Spectrum Noirs: LG2; TB1, 2, 4; PL1; FS2, 3, 6; CR4; GB1; TN2, 3, 4; PP2, 4, 5; PL1, 3.

The card and background paper were just something from my stash, and the mat for the image was from a Hobbycraft Ombre pad.

Tonic dies used to cut the sentiment, leaves (Autumnal Oak) and flowers (Bellus Buttercup).

Valentine Fairy

Among my new year's resolutions was to make more cards, enter more challenges and post more often. Unfortunately it's not gone very well! This is only my second post - although I have prepared and even made a few cards which I can hopefully post soon.

This is my DT card for the February Fairy and Unicorn Challenge which is sponsored by the fabulous digistamps4joy this month, and has the theme Use Red. I have used the Spring Fairy image, which I coloured using a mix of Promarker and Spectrum Noir pens. I used Promarkers: Black, Leaf Green, Poppy and Cardinal Red. Spectrum Noirs: EB2 (basket); GB1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 9 (hair); FS2, 3 and 6 (skin); CR3 (cheeks); IG1, 2 and 3 (wings) plus Powder Blue.

I started with an 8x8 card blank which I matted with red card and then white card which had been embossed using the Tonic Amelia folder and then dusted with red ink. I cut the mage out using Tonic's Art Nouveau die and put it on to a red mat cut using the same die. I finished it off with a red ribbon bow, some die cut red hearts and Tonic's Will's Hand Love sentiment.

I hope you like my card, if you've time to leave a comment that would be great too!
