For You!

Welcome back!!  Fast weekend huh?  They always are.  LOL!  This week we are all sharing the new Pion Design collection "A Day in May".  It's very neutral but that's what I like about it.  I feel like I've been making so many blue and pink cards lately I needed to switch it up a bit!

So super excited about this post this week!!  I did color some images about a year ago using distress inks but I didn't really get it.  I've been practicing more over the past few weeks, thanks to Jenny Hodges and Sheri Willshire who gave me the bug to try again.  I just love the soft look soooooo much!!  My copic coloring tends to be very very vibrant so this is a great change.  I did use the markers and inks but LLC carries a lot of DI colors.  The image is "For You Tilda" from Magnolia.

Don't you just LOVE this lace?!  I know I say that a lot but so many of LLC's laces are soooo GORGEOUS!  The name is "Queen of Sheba"...REALLY?!!  So fitting!!!  It just screams royalty!

I was so amazed that I could bend this butterfly ... not easily but it does bend to give it more dimension.  I added some Frantage to it and some teeny antennas that I'm sure you can hardly see.

And my last pic to show you is my flower bouquet but this time I kind of have a wide one filled with Wild Orchid craft flowers, vintage berries and a rolled flower from LLC.  The tickets are from the new papers as well.  I distressed all edges and put platinum Stickles on each layer. 

Well that's it for today!!  Happy Monday, have a great week and I hope you get some crafting time in!!  Thanks for stopping by!


I am joining the following challenge:

I love the soft look of distress inks, but I need lots more practice with that medium. I adore your coloring of Tilda and your selection of embellishments is always outstanding and luscious. As for the papers, I've never seen Pion papers I did not like!!!! Have a lovely week, my friend!
