Spring Fairies

I made this card using a Fairy from Pergamano and in the background is Daffodil Dell from Make it Crafty. This is one I’ve had made for a while and finally had an empty slot today to use it. 😀 These little fairies are so cute so the card was fun to make. -Enjoy!

Did you know? The Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve is a conservation area and World Heritage Site within the wintering grounds of most of the monarch butterflies that migrate from east of the Rocky Mountains for up to 4,000 km south to central Mexico. It is estimated that between 60 million and 1 billion butterflies arrive in this area alone any given year. This area, which hosts the majority of wintering monarchs from the east of the United States and Canada, has only been known since the 1970s.

I’m giving it a go experimenting with Prismacolor Pencils and have colored an image from Summer Fairies by Pergamano. The one on the left shows the coloring using the pencils only and the one on the right shows the result after blending.

I blended the dress and flower with a paperstump pressing really hard. The rest of the image with blended with a Prismacolor Blending Pencil which you can see clearly in the hair and bird. I didn’t find too much of a difference between the two blending results, although, I had to press down slightly harder with the paperstump.
