A Sprite and a Dragon

Aletha here with a very fun art card for you today. SweetPea Stamps (SPS) has started carrying a line of rubber stamps designed by the fantasy artist Mitzi Sato-Wiuff. I have loved her images for forever and when Lynette announced that Sweet Peas was going to be producing rubber for Ms. Sato-Wiuff,  I did the happy dance again. I say again because every time a new artist is picked up by SPS I do the happy dance.

For my little piece of art I chose to create with the Snapdragon Sprite and Baby Dragon stamp. I love all things fantastical, and this one fit the bill. I also love coloring with my Copics, and just look at all those snapdragon ruffles begging to be colored just as bright as I could make them. I thought red and yellow would do the trick.

After the coloring I fussy cut the sprite and popped her up on some cardstock. I do love my layers and some contrast, so there was a lot of cutting going on with this project.

This little sprite really did not need too many embellishments. I decided that a few dainty butterflies would do the trick. I also used some Liquid Pearls for some accents on the butterflies and corners. I always forget about Liquid Pearls and I love using them when I do remember.

You still have a little time to join in our monthly challenge at One Sweet Challenge. We would love for you to join our SPSFacebook group and share your love for all things Sweet Pea Stamps. Want to keep up with all the happenings at SPS, then come “like” our page and you can be the first informed.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you stop by every day. We have two to three inspirational pieces for you every day. See you again next Monday!
