A Suprise Post....


Good morning out there!  My title can be a little deceiving so I want to clear that up right now!  I have gotten a little lax in posting, getting down to Monday, Wednesday and Friday and I must admit I've become quite lazy in my crafting.  The surprise is it is Thursday and I have a card to share with you.  This little darling comes to me from a special friend...stamped onto watercolor paper and ready to color just for you.  She is such a dear one to take the time to send these to me as she knows I love to practice my coloring with Ranger Distress re-inkers.  Sometimes, still when I color I have to just trash the piece and start over on something else.  This one turned out perfectly I think!  I think she is just so cute standing on the fence with the flowers all around her and that perfect hat just topping off the whole design.

As I was saying, I colored this with distress inks and then mounted on a piece of brown card stock to match the piece of design paper I found.  Next I needed some ribbon or some tiny yellow flowers, so I opted to take a piece of seam binding and color it with a Lemon Pro Marker and it does such a fine job of matching the piece. 

I wanted to keep this clean and simple as I am really proud of the way it worked up.  And by doing this I can mail with no problem.

Well thanks for stopping by to visit.  I always appreciate your visits and if you have time to leave a comment I love to read them!  And as always, no matter where you are or what you are doing, take a moment and breathe!

I can see why your pleased with how your card turned out... She's just perfect, love how you do the blue shading around the upper part of the image and the brown shading around the bottom for sky and ground. I'm always scard to to that after I have the whole thing colored, but it just sofenes the whold look. And the Yellow is just the color to set it off!
Great Job!!!

Love this little image and I agree 100% on trying to do things so they can be easily mailed. Then they are out of here with less expense. Thanks for stopping by, I just seem to have NO extra time and trying to limit this computer time to get caught up from missing about a week with travel and illness.. Have a great weekend, today we have some much needed rain but to be 80 on Sunday..Trees are budding and early flowers peeping thru.
