Sketch and Spring!

Rachelle Anne Miller Magic Fairy Stamp colored with
Copics and Tombows.
Papers: Imaginisce - Twitterpated and ki - Bloom

Thursday!! Oh, you tease of a day. So close to Friday... but not.

Oh well!

This week, the universe aligned with me. For years I have coveted this lovely acrylic stamp by Rachelle Anne Miller. I just found her on sale and snapped her up. Yep. I put my desire for a printer and camera on hold to spend a few pesos on this fantastic specimen of a stamp. Oh, universe ... I would like to submit her to Flutter by Wednesday's butterfly or fairy challenge and Fab'n'Funky's angels and fairies challenge. See?! The universe aligned! Fairies are popular this week!

Actually, I bought her with what was left of a rebate after I made a donation at Saturated Canary for the Give Big thing. I knew there was instant karma associated with that!

To complete her, observe the awesomeness of the sketch over at The Sweetest Thing! Cool, right? I think I might have picked some rather busy papers to go with, but I just couldn't pass up the opportunity  to save some paper. Each of these lovely pieces are double-sided, so it was a personal challenge to minimize paper use. Even those flowers are cut from the double-sided papers!

On another note, my technologically challenged self has figured out how to add those blinky things! Talk about a pain in the patootie! ... but I do feel rather accomplished now that it's there... and I've managed to turn off the mysterious and abominable word verification doo-hickey.

Go me!

Enjoy what's left of the teasing-est day of the week and keep it crafty!
