Holiday Sprite


I do hope you are not getting tired of this image.  I think she is just the CA-YOOOT-ist little thing!  Although, I believe this is the first non-Halloweenie version I've made with her :)  I colored these two while in Illinois last week.  I didn't have my card base or dp with me, but I knew I wanted to use Reece... I crossed my fingers that I would get the colors right ;)  Jackpot!


Stamps:  Spunky Sprite Girls, Vintage Santa
Paper:  Reece SWIC, white UltraSmooth, black & Reece cardstocks
Ink:  Noir Palette
Colorant:  Prismacolors with mineral oil blending
Other:  Scor-Bug, Patina Stickles, white tulle, sanding block


I stamped and cut out the snowflakes and popped them up on foam tape over the image of the flower after coloring the flower black to act as a shadow.  The flakes don't work as well as the skull like I did HERE, but I think they still work :)


The tulle was a leftover scrap from when I did the potion bottle sample for TAC Project Playlist for Halloween... and, no... no I DON'T throw many scraps away ;)  This little piece of tulle has been fluttering around my table for a couple of months now!

Two more Holiday cards done!!  Yeay!  I guess I'd better start getting these in the mail... if you are one of the recipients, and the card just happens to be a day or two after Christmas, I hope you will still enjoy it :)

What do you think?
