LOC Challenge #30 - Spring Fling

Spring is in the air...! :D  

How lovely has the weather been over Easter..? !  It's been a joy to see the sunshine and be able to walk the dogs without them coming home resembling some kind of mud-monster!

Over at Left Of Centre  Spring has sprung too - the theme this week is Spring Fling and we have two amazing sponsors who are offering prizes from their fab digistamp collections!

I've selected a Delicious Doodles image because a) it's really pretty and b) Teri Sherman, who does the drawing, is not only an amazing artist but a lovely lady too.

It's called 'Snowdrop Fairy' and can be found in her shop along with many other lovely images.




I gave it a fairly simple 'treatment' because I felt it is such a pretty, delicate image it needs no bells and whistles to improve it.  I just matted it onto black card, then aqua card and mounted it onto some pretty aqua paper I had in my stash (maker unknown I'm afraid!) .  The filigree black frame is a Spellbinders Labels One fancy die.

I did effect one little extra, I decoupaged the fairy and layered her with a little Pinflair glue, just to give a little extra dimension.

Please do pop over the LOC and have a look at my amazing teamies creations - they are very passionate about our little challenge blog and really do appreciate any love left on their personal blogs!

Why don't you have a go yourselves and try for one of the lovely prizes on offer?

Go on...! You know you want to.... ;) !
