It's Time to Think Spring!

I know it's only February but man it sure does feel like Spring here in Indiana.  They are calling for temps in the 40's for the next week and the sun doesn't set until after 6:30pm now!!!  Woo Hoo!!  LOL

Anyway, I wanted to share this fun "Spring-y" tag with you today....

Ranger - Summer CHA 11 044

All stamps are: Stampers Best

The background, sentiment and fairy are all stamped using Archival Inks.  I used Distress Inks/Stains on the edges of the tag and to watercolor the fairy with the help of my Niji Waterbrush.

For a unique twist I used Glossy Accents to "highlight" the fairy and flower as well as the sentiment.  I coated her wings with a layer of Rock Candy.

Ahhhh, makes you feel all warm and fuzzy huh? 
O.k...maybe not but at least it will help put you in that Spring frame of mind :)

You all have a wonderful evening!!


  1. I love it! Anything with a fairy on it makes my day!

  2. Oh, its beautiful. I am a bit partial to fairies, which helps, but the rock candy on her wings looks cool!

  3. Roni -

    This is so stunning! I love all the glossy accents. It really does make me crave Spring. Beautiful!

  4. Love the glossy accents and rock candy crackle.

  5. She's beautiful! Love the glossy accents and the crackle on her wings!

  6. What a lovely image and the way you used the glossy accents makes the fairy look kind of ethereal.

  7. It is simply lovely. The design is crisp and clear, the colors just right, and the detail is excellent on the wings. I'd keep it to use as a bookmark.

  8. This is gorgeous!! Love the GA on the fairy!

  9. AWESOME Roni!! Love this light, cheery look and that amazing little fairy!

  10. I love the "highlights" of glossy accents~I never would have thought of that! Thanks for sharing this wonderful tag and for sharing some great techniques!
