Hello and welcome!
I printed this super cute digi image – Big Eye, Big Head Besties img613 on my new favorite paper – X-Press It. This paper loves alcohol ink markers. The markers just guide on super smooth and it makes blending a breeze! If you haven’t tried it – you are in for a big treat. Check it out! I used pink and blue colored pencils to add a little interest to my background. Hum – Colored pencils work great too on X-Press It! 😀
My image was colored used Copic Sketch Markers.

The flowers were cut using Neenah Solar White paper.
It is smooth and I used the lighter weight – The 65# paper is perfect for molding the flowers.
The flowers were cut from “Small Gardenia Die” from Cheery Lynn Designs die and
sponged the with Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber Distress Ink.
I used Spearmint by Pop Tones for the leaves.
They were stamped with the Open Leaves stamp set and cut with Classic Leaf Die from Heartfelt Creations.
I sponged the edges with Bundled Sage and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I gave the flowers and leaves a quick spray of Glitter Dust. (This is in an aerosol can.)
I used Sherri Baldy’s My Besties Vintage Violet for my designer paper.
The mat layer is a gorgeous deep blue violet color from BASIS 80# called “Purple”.
The card base was created from my all time favorite – Heavenly White 120#.
It is firm and hold up perfectly for a card base 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by.
