I am sure that everyone is happy that spring is finally here. I do know, although, some of you are still getting snow. Hopefully, this sweet little Spring Sprite from Aurora Wings will put a smile on anyone’s face. She is very adorable from the flowers and bunny ears in her hair, down to her little school girl socks. When asked to do this special showcase project I couldn’t resist nor could my daughter Meadow. We sat together coloring this cute little Spring Sprite together.
This is probably one of my first spring/Easter cards of the season. Thank goodness for Meadow’s help with this card. She was again able to cut the paper for me. I am amazed at how good of a team we are becoming. She still likes to do her own thing though, so as soon as she finished helping me to cut my paper she was off to make her own card.
I was going to just leave the outside of the frame white but I thought it looked pretty neat when Meadow cut it out for me so I decided to leave it the way that she did it. I put a couple of layers of lace ribbon behind the frame. I think the hardest part was getting the butterflies to pop up with some hot glue. The glue dots just were not working out.
I also had to add some of the soft flowers from Wild Orchid as well because we all know how much I love those. The last thing I added was some glittery dew candy drops (I think that is what the package said)
The Copic Markers that I used were:
- Dress Hat, Socks: RV0000, RV000, RV10, RV23
- Skin: E000, E00, R20, E02
- Hair: E40, E42, E43, E44, E47
- Ears: E40, RV10, RV000
- Flowers: V0000, V000, V12, V25,YG67, YG63, YG61, RV10, RV000, White Gel Pen
I told you at the beginning that Meadow sat and colored her Spring Sprite right along with me. She took her time and used all the colors that she wanted. She loves to use the Copic markers and she starting to shade as well. It is so much fun to see her shading and asking which colors she needs to use. She is really excited that she is even starting to get her own collection of Copic markers as I slowly change all my ciao and original markers into sketch markers. Mitzi’s drawings are her favorite stamps to color so she is always excited when Mitzi has something new to color, especially the sprites.
The die cut she used to cut out the Spring Sprite is her favorite shape to use. Meadow’s other favorite shape is squares so she will also use a lot of those on her cards. Then she says she has to finish it off with some sparkly “bits”, she loves sparkles! I love how she did the hair red with bits of blonde in there for a bit of highlight. I think she did pretty darn good! I love that we do this together. I thank Mitzi for letting her be a part of my post 🙂 xx
