Sending Hugs and Sunshine


Hello friends!  It's the 25th and I'm participating in PTI's Blog Hop.  Here's our inspiration photo...





I created a water colour background with my light carmine and ochre Zig pens then stenciled some embossing paste over top.  I stamped the sentiment directly onto the watercolour paper using my mini Misti and created a couple of butterflies with vellum overlays.  Thanks for stopping by and see you on the hop!

Beautiful Maureen I love the how you used the embossing paste, you gave it a reall painterly look and the butterflies add the perfect touch. Have a blessed day
