Spring is in the Air

YIPPEEEEE the new printer has finally arrived, just got to get  the drivers downloaded and then I will be back in action, it did nt arrive in time for me to join in with the rest of the fab DT for this weeks challenge of 'Make It Shine' at  Make It Colourful, but thats no reason why you shouldn't give it a go oh and by the way we have another fantastic new sponsor this week Elaine of Quixotic Paperie who is offering £10 to spend in store to the winner.

The good thing about not having my printer though was that I was forced to get out my stamps, this little cutie is Blue Fairy from Sweet Pea Stamps.

she was stamped onto copic paper which I stuck to cardboard and used a Marianne D die cut for the shape. I masked the fairy and used my copic air brush to give a pale green background for the image, and then used some really bright warm colours to depict spring. the papers are My Minds Eye.
The little butterfly was originaly white so I coloured that in matching copics and the flowers I coloured with Glimmer Mist (I had to paint it on as the spray bottle won't work dont you just hate that!).
