New month, new task over at the Fadengrafik Challenge! In June, we'd like to see your "Summer colours" themed projects, and for some inspiration, I decided to create a card using this wonderful Flower Fairy by Cicely Mary Baker.
The pink and green might not be a typical summer combination for everyone, but to me, there's no summer until clover flowers are shining in the unmowed grass.
Matching the picture, I picked shades of green and pink yarn for my stitching. Once the frame was done, I placed the fairy on a light green background paper and glued it onto the surface. For the other background paper, I've chosen a bold pink one, and I nearly ruined hours of work by using the extra-strong adhesive tape. Not that there would be something wrong with it, but I somehow managed to misplace the fairy scene and almost couldn't get it off the paper without tearing everything apart.
A while later, another piece of pink paper did the job perfectly, and as if I didn't have enough gluing for the day, I thought I'd add a layer of green grass on the card base itself. I'm not sure whether it was necessary or not, but I didn't want to leave too much white in the background and thought the "clovers in the grass" combination would become even more visible this way.
Of course, I couldn't finish my card without adding a couple of pearls in different shades of pink and green :)
In the end, I'm not 100% happy with the outcome even though I can't really point out why. I assume it's the overload of pink and green, but then again, this is just how early summer meadows look to me.

- as you like it: scenes or not (I usually incorporate a picture/digi in my creations, but I will not create scenes myself - partly because I prefer colouring, and partly because I feel like creating scenes is much easier with stamps, die-cuts and distress inks, all of which I don't own and therefore don't use.)
