I am running a little behind with my post today! Yesterday my hubbie surprised me by taking me out for lunch! It was amazing. We went to an Italian Restaurant and ate a leisurely and very delicious meal together! We adore our children but it is pretty difficult to have “normal” conversation when they are around! So yesterday was just heaven!
My card today is for the “A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge” which is “buttons galore”. Well I am not sure this constitutes “galore” but this is my entry. I have used my favorite Whimsy Kids Stamps “Emma with Umbrella” and I went for a vintage feel. I colored her with distress inks. Would you believe that I only used four different inks? It is true. I used Tattered Rose, Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Brushed Corduroy. I find it very relaxing to water color. It takes a lot longer than Copic coloring but that is part of the fun! I tried to keep the card simple. The white cardstock was run through the cuttlebug with my swiss dots folder.
