Spring is in the Air

The sun is finally shining and the temps here in Georgia are rising. It's a beautiful spring day and sweet Tilda is out enjoying the day as well.  I have been coloring, coloring, coloring and completely forgetting to actually assemble a card. I signed up for Angie Hunt's Distress Ink watercolor class over at Color Me Creative. I've been practicing but still not quite happy with the results. I suppose we are our own worse critics. Once my finished image meets my standards I promise to share!

The stargazer lily was made using a poinsettia svg file I found on the internet somewhere. I cut it using my Cricut with white cardstock, airbrushed it with Copics RV11 and little dots on the pedals were made with Zig's colorbrush "cola". Card recipe is:

Designer paper:  DCWV Pocket full of Posies
Image:  Tilda with Hawaii Flower and Wheelbarrow
Stamp Ink:  Memento
Tilda's Hair:  E21, E25, E29
Tilda's Skin:  E00, E11, E13
Tilda's Dress:  BV00, BV02, BV11, BV17 and Diamond Stickles on lace
Wheelbarrow:  C3, C5, C8, E31, E33, E35, E37
Leaves & Grass:  YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97
Flowers: RV11, RV13, RV17, RV19 with a little Diamond Stickles
