Thinking of you

Good morning, and thanks for joining me today. Some time ago, I ordered some images from Lilli of the Valley (LOTV) and haven't done anything with them. Came across them recently, decided I needed to change that situation. Here's the following card that resulted:


- Can't take any credit for the cute little bunny...was already colored when I started with the card (:-0).  I did make the background of the very simple cardbase. (the black is what I placed the card against to photograph it just in case you can't tell this!). I airbrushed plain white paper with various dark pink copics using a piece of lace as a mask. The lace is sort of a tulle but with patterns in it and the flower pattern showed up pretty well using the dark pinks. It's covered up by the topper though! Used Memento New Sprout on a leaf stamp over the airbrushing. Used the same color to smudge around the S/Binder diecut image, while still in the die. Ditto for the tiny sentiment. Didn't have any pink ribbon that worked with this, so just took my copic marker and colored a piece of white ribbon.

- butterflies were from an embossed piece of vellum, MS punch that has multiple sizes on it.

This was an easy card - I love those LOTV images. This has been mailed to a buddy who's had a rough patch for a while, so I hope it cheers her to know I'm thinking of her.

Ya'll have a nice day. I'm off to take a class in Iris Folding. Something I've always wanted to learn.
Hugs & enjoy whatever it is that you're doing.

Hi Mary!!
This is adorable! I love how you airbrushed over the lace thats an awesome idea! The colours are great.
I hope that you are enjoying your weekend and you enjoyed your class.
The weather here was sunny and hot so we got some outside time in before our rainy BC weather kicks in.
