Collect Beautiful Moments - Ching Chou Kuik Fairy Wren Digi

 "The wren and the nightingale sound nothing alike, but think how dull the world would be without the songs of both birds.-Miss Kanagawa" ~ Kirby Larson

Hey there from Nannyland,

Birds, butterflies and dragon flies - the gems that adorn nature with their splendid beauty and grace. The world wouldn't be fully dressed without them!  The fairy wren in the foreground of this beautiful Chou Kuik digital stamp was a treat to color with Copics in its traditional shades of blue and lavender. These vivid hues inspired the rest of my blue, lavender and green palette. As always,  Chou Kuik's stunning images call to me with their soulful eyes and amazing detail.  

After coloring her with Copic markers, I fussy cut this lovely delicate lady and adhered her with mounting tape to a lacy Heartfelt Creations die cut frame. The scallops are garnished with white iridescent  gems.  Her fairy wren companion is nestled in a cluster of die cut flowers and leaves.  Her leafy head band is embellished with tiny purple pearl gems.  I stamped a Tim Holtz sentiment on a die cut tag and edged it with a gold leafing pen.  I added small details to the image with a white gel pen. 

I hope I have inspired you to enjoy the beautiful moments of spring by creating some projects using all the things that make this season magical. Bring on the birds, insects, flowers, sunshine, and maybe a few showers to keep things sparkling! 

Thanks for visiting Nannyland.
I'll just be here blissfully creating until your next visit.
