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!
