Saw this image popping up from time to time and liked it every time I saw it!  Got a couple of the kits (stamps) from QVC in the sale so decided to get the other two.  I think this one is the Summer Fairies.

As well as treating myself to Polychromos pencils (brilliant price on ebay for wooden box set of 120) love them.  Saw the Prisma pencils wooden box set on ebay and bid on those two.  Finished up winning both - LUCKY ME!  As I had the Polychromos wooden box set first I have been using them (I did buy a number of each of the pencils before placing my bids to see if I liked them!)  On this image I used the Prisma pencils with my copics.  I would say the difference
between the two sets is the Prisma pencils are softer leads.

I used a copics black fine liner for the border and white gouache for the highlights and spots on the girl's dress.

Papers:  Digi papers - patterned (think Creative Cottage?), Plain - Crafters Companion
Embellishments: Ribbon, faux paper brads (QVC),
Hope you like the spring colours for Valentine!
