Spring has Sprung

Its none too warmer out in the back waters of Essex but I can see Spring peeping through, quite a few naturalised Daffodils and Narcissus are in full bloom and the Hyacinths are just beginning to pop their heads up

Our new challenge at One Stitch At A Time this week is 'Anything Goes With Nature. I chose to use IkeSart beautiful 'Spring Fairy' and you can find her here.  To me, I think she is very Art Nouveau and I wanted to give her a very soft appearance so I decided to colour her with my watercolour pencils I was lucky buy these from an art shop that was closing down. I've hardly used them but it has given her a very soft focus.

I didn't want any decoration to spoil the image so I've kept it very Simple. The corner is a Memory Box Die and a couple of Memory Box flowers. The background paper is from a Hunkydory kit.
