Playing with a few new things

So....I've been spending some time lately trying some new things I have added to my crafty collection.  The first is the Tim Holtz spritzer.  This tool does take some getting used to...so I have been playing around a lot with it...and I have to say it is fun!  The next thing are the Spectrum Noir colored pencils.  They are really nice and blend very nicely with gamsol.  So I thought I would combine the two to make a card for the Tiddly Inks Head in the Clouds challenge.

I first printed the image (Fairy Fae catches a star) onto watercolor paper and colored her in.  I then used the spritzer to create this background.  I cut a cloud image from scrap paper and spritzed using  purple, blues, greens, and pinks.  I then outlined the clouds with a grey Copic liner and then with a white Signo pen.  I then mounted the image onto two pieces of coordinating cardstock.

I also added some glitter pen to the stars.  I think she is so wonderful...




Gotta go...more spritzing to do....too little time...

Happy crafting....Lynda

This is lovely. I really like the background you achieved with the spritzers. It's perfect for the fairy.
