Sprite Delight Part Trois

Today marks the beginning of the newest challenge at the

The new theme is an oldie, but a goody,

This is the third time we have used the adorable Sprites
as our challenge theme because they never get old.
It's always a favorite of the DT who love creating with them.
Mitzi's Sprites were the very reason I fell in love with her
art to begin with. 

My Grandma's birthday is this Wednesday.
She loves flowers and all things purple.
I knew right away that the Wisteria Sprite would be
perfect for her Birthday card. 
I always end up going pretty CAS when spotlighting
one of Mitzi's images. I hate to compete with her gorgeous artwork.
This time I used quite a few die cuts without making things too cluttered. 

I colored little Miss Wisteria using Copic markers in the
Violet and Red Violet families. I saved the Blue Violets for her face and body.
I never color the Sprites in flesh tones. They're not human in my world,
so they get fantastical skin tones. I'd love to have violet or blue green skin.
Who wouldn't?! 

I added some Clear Rock Candy dry glitter to the frame and some
of her hair berries(?) and earrings for some sparkle.
That stuff (the dry glitter) is great for some quick bling.

That's it for me today.
Still running late from having such a liquid-filled good time yesterday.
I like to say I'm not much of a drinker, but I really made myself
into a liar yesterday. It was Valentine's Day, what the hell! 
Once a year (hopefully) won't kill me.


  1. Your combo of purples is so gorgeous, Gloria and I'm always in awe of your magical coloring. This is fabulously festive and I'm sure Grandma will love it. I sure do. Hope you've recovered from the Valentine celebration yesterday. I'm not quite sure I have. LOL xxD

  2. Wow love her! I am also agree that they are not from this world, but never get a great combo for those skin tone 😂

  3. Well, I had to go and Google Rock Candy Dry Glitter, and here I am twenty minutes later after watching an entire Tim Holtz video about it! Miss Wisteria is beautiful and I know grandmama is going to love her. I can see so many possibilities for that dry glitter stuff ... so thanksalot, Glo! The spouse will probably pop by to say thanksalot, too. :)

  4. AWESOME - this is a delight and super fabulous colouring as always :-D

  6. Sorry to stop by late, Glo. ^^; Love this birthday card for your Grandma with Wisteria Sprite in shades of reddish purple! You did such a great job coloring this baby to bring out dimension. All cute and sweet, but decidedly Glo-esque as always! Thank you so much for your beautiful inspiration for our Sprite Delight III challenge at Aurora Wings.
