In a Sweet Pea Dream Challenge #15

In a Sweet Pea Dream Challenge # 15
'Favourite Colour'
Hmm... which to choose...?
Blue - turquoise blue !

Papers are Country Diary, Mariposa and Once Upon a Springtime.
Stamp is Meredith Dillman's Little Peacock Fairy coloured with Promarkers and Copics.
I stamped and embossed the 'tendrils' onto the Mariposa paper first, stamped and coloured the whole image as
usual on white Neena card then cut it out. The skirt is stamped twice more and layered up to create a decoupage.
I tinted the doilie with different shades of Distress Inks and matted it all up with a bit of gold card.
I was very tempted to stamp a sentiment in the grey space but resisted !
The beautiful Sweet Pea stamp and lovely papers did all the work this time.
^_^

I tucked a little Bluejay feather in beside the flower and the postcard is so sweet with it's poem about spring -


Clouds of snowy blossom,
Flashed with tints of rose,
Sheaths of brown, which opening
Tender leaves disclose,
Buds of fairy beauty,
Grouped in perfect sprays
These are coming for us
With the sweet spring days !
