Oh Happy Day!!


I tried my hand at watercolouring again on this card.....and I'm not so thrilled with the result! You know that saying, 'Two steps forward, one step back'? Well, that's what I feel like with this one. I just don't know if watercolouring is my 'thing'.

Anyhoooo, this design is already flying to Sweden along with a few other DT designs. Almost everything on this card is made using items that Magnolia sent for me to use. The card base is 6x6 and the patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Mellow line, I believe. I stamped Tilda with her little flower on SU watercolour paper using Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and I used a small paintbrush and SU reinkers to paint her. The tag I made from a piece of River Rock cardstock and the sentiment and hearts are from a clear Heidi Grace set. The blossom grouping is made up of several different flowers and the brad in the center is a nice big chocolate brown suede brad. I finished the design off by adding a couple of buttons and some Stardust Stickles on her little wings. Not perfect, but not horrible either.

Well, it's supposed to be another beautiful spring day here in Ontario......and I gotta work!! BUT I do have four days off in a row after that, so I'm looking forward to finishing up tonight!!! Then tomorrow is my lunch in Petrolia!! Yummy food, stamp shoppin'.....what more could a girl ask for? If you'd like to join me, just let me know!!!

Oh and don't forget about my challenge to win some High Hopes stamps!!

Have a wonderful day!!
