Bloom & Grow...


I made today's card for this month's 'anything goes' challenge over at Some Odd Girl. This beautiful Lounge Fairy digital stamp is one of the newest SOG cuties added to my collection and I couldn't wait to color her up. At first I didn't have a real plan for her, the only thing I knew for sure is that I wanted to color her hands yellow so that it would look like she had been busy collecting pollen from all the spring flowers. Once that was done I got the idea to color her hair black with a bit of yellow to kind of look like a honey bee. And just like that I had a busy bee fairy taking a short break before buzzing off to the next patch of flowers. I even added some yellow glitter to her hands and the tree stump to really help sell the magic. If you can't tell, I really had a blast watching this sweet image come to life under my markers.  :)

Hope your weekend is a crafty one!
