Butterfly Dreams


It's time for Cute Card Thursday!  This week we want to see your projects that include NO text!  Easy Peasy!!

This was the first time that I watercolored with distress inks!  So please be honest and let me know what you think.  I think I need to soften the colors a little, my colors seem a bit intense.  Oh! and the hydrenga flower was homemade!  I used a Marvy punch and half of a stryofoam ball to create it.  I'm really happy with the way it came out and will definately be making more of those!



Thanks for stopping by!  It's so great to "see" you again!

Hello Lisa, WOW, First time with inks? Well, can't wait to see what you will do after a while! Tilda is wonderful, your colors are fabulous. Your hydrangea is wonderful, such a personal touch.

Lisa your card is gorjuss!!! I love the layout with the tilted layers. If you check out Angie Hunt or Chris Dark's work with Distress inks they have a lot of intensity so you are headed in the right direction.
hugs, Diana
