Pansy Sprite

Aurora Wings were offering a lovey free sprite digi stamp this month and as their challenge theme is Sprites only I thought I would give it a try.


Materials used:
Aurora Wings – Pansy Sprite (not yet in store)
X-Press It card
watercolour paper
Color Burst powders
blue and red card
acrylic greetings stamp
black archival ink pad
Copic pens

Pansy Sprite coloured with Copics then fussy cut. Mat made from a piece of watercolour paper ‘painted’ with Color Burst. This came from my stash box and was made quite a while ago. It was pure coincidence that the colours went.

The image is matted on the Color Burst painted paper then layered onto red and blue card before atttaching to the front of an A5 card blank.

The greeting is stamped at the bottom of the card in black.

My sprite has been made up of two different colour ways, well it’s different!

When printing up my images I like to use as much of the space on the card as I can so I often print out smome smaller versions for practicing with. If these go well then they can be made up into ATC’s. I managed a couple of sprites that were good enough to use.










Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

  1. OOOH, what serendipity that your lovely color burst background matched your beautiful coloring of Pansy Sprite, Pippa! Those bursts are so much fun to play with but you never really know what you’ll get, eh? I have a number of them saved myself just waiting… In any case, it’s a wonderful birthday card that someone will be thrilled to receive. Adorable little ATC’s, too. So happy you’ve enjoyed Mitzi’s little gift. Thanks so much for joining our Sprite Delight IV challenge at Aurora Wings. xxD
