Wishing you Happiness... :)

Hi everyone!! I managed to get into my stamping room tonight and PLAY!!! This will be a quick post as I need to get some sleep... LOL!

Don't be to shocked... yes, I colored an image!! This has been long over due. I don't have Copic Markers yet and they look so fun to work with.... I must confess my coloring was done with SU! Markers, aqua painter and watercolor paper. I think I did an OK job on blending, and picking my colors out... soooo much fun trying this technique!! :)

I cut my circle and scallops with my Nestie Dies using my CuttleBug. I cut off the handle to the wagon then trimmed it out to attach it to the scallop edge to give more of a 3-D look. Also I cut 3 flowers out and popped them with double glue dots, added Stickles for bling and yellow rhinestone centers. See close up photo for more details and click on it to get an even closer look!!
Enjoy.... and thanks for the visit... I just LOVE it when you do! Have a great evening as I'm posting this late, and I'm sure there are a few late night surfers!!

This is just beautiful Michelle! While Copics are nice, I still LOVE the watercolor look, and yours is First Rate! I especially love how you "blinged" the flowers. This card makes me smile.

I went a little crazy at the Scrapbook Expo yesterday, but did my part to stimulate the economy. hee hee Can't wait to share some of my goodies, but first I need to clean up my craft room before I start another project. *LOL*

Love to you my friend. Lisa
