Seasonal Sprites

I have been collecting these gorgeous sprite images from AuroraWings and when I saw the theme for the blog challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to create.

The theme is My Favourite Season….and as I have difficulty in making a decision, I decided to create a card featuring all four seasons.

AuroraWings - Sprites

Spring heralds new life and the promise of better weather. My garden is already showing green glossy clumps of bluebell leaves, and daffodils budding ready to flower. Here is the pretty Bluebell Sprite:

Summer brings sunshine and warm lazy evenings. The garden is a riot of colour and birds and butterflies flit through the air. The longer days afford us the chance to enjoy being outside after a day’s work. Sunflower Sprite is my summer star!!

Autumn sees a glorious change – the trees are painted in reds and gold, and the cooler weather brings us mysterious misty mornings. We wrap up in warmer clothes and kick our way through the fallen leaves. The Acorn Sprite has glitter on his leaves:

Winter is the season of frost, ice and snow. Our breath can be seen in smoky clouds and everywhere is shrouded in that muffled silence that a covering of snow provides. The cute Mistletoe Sprite has little dots of Liquid Pearls on her berries:

All the images are coloured with Promarkers and Copics. The seasons are stamped with Archival ink.

  3. What a gorgeous project, Teresa!! Such a creative solution to the dilemma of not being able to pick a single season as they all have its own beauty. Your coloring on each Sprite is delightful, and I love the distinct but cohisive look! Thank you for joining us for the “My Favorite Season” challenge at Aurora Wings. Mitzi xx
