Hey ya'll!! I have a very special project for you this month!! I have been working on getting this made since this time last year when the crazy idea popped into my head!!! And now it's finished and the finished project has arrived just in time for the Sprite Delight IV Challenge over at Aurora Wings!!! I colored 54 Sprites and using Printer Studio I turned them into a beautiful deck of playing cards!!
The Printer Studio software and my home scanner turned my colorings into an awesome collectors item!!!
I tried to use Sprites I had colored in pinks and reds for the Hearts and Diamonds suits so that the colors would compliment each other.
Featuring: Mistletoe Sprite, Strawberry Sprite, Ladybug Sprite, Cupcake Sprite, Cherry Sprite, Butterfly Sprite- Simply Wings, Christmas Lights Sprite, Poinsettia Sprite, Whimsical Cherry Blossom Sprite, Rose Sprite, Sundae Sprite, Slow Loris Sprite (He is not available for purchase, he was part of a Slow Loris fundraiser), Cardinal Sprite
Apple Sprite, Linnea Sprite, Daphne Sprite, Pansy Sprite, Venus Fly Trap Sprite, Holly Sprite, Jellyfish Sprite, Lily of the Valley Sprite, Wild Rose Sprite, Cherry Blossom Sprite, Poppy Sprite, Lotus Sprite, Bleeding Hearts Sprite
I used the Sprites I had colored in other colors for the Spades and Clubs suits in hopes again the colors would compliment each other and make the colors of the Sprites really pop!
Featuring: Columbine Sprite, Autumn Sprite, Tiger Lily Sprite, Star Angel Sprite, Dandelion Sprite, Wisteria Sprite, Petunia Sprite, Snap Dragon Sprite, Violet Sprite, Orchid Sprite, Christmas Tree Sprite, Calla Lily Sprite, Hydrangea Sprite
Acorn Baby, Honey Bee Sprite, Acorn Sprite, Corn Sprite, Pumpkin Sprite, Sunflower Sprite, Hibiscus Sprite, Bamboo Sprite, Butterfly Sprite- Fancy Wings, Winter Sprite, Pineapple Sprite, Garland Sprite, Day of the Dead Marigold Sprite
I was also very careful to space out the seasonal and holiday sprites throughout the flower sprites so that no suit or run would be over come with Christmas/ Winter Sprites.
I am unbelievably thrilled with the end result!! My hope is that there will be a sale at Printer Studio between now and Christmas and I will be able to give these as gifts to our friends and family this Christmas.
