Tilda with her balloon in Blue

I finally did it, I have been practicing watercoloring with very little color to make it light or barely there.  I am very heavy handed when I color so this was a task.  Tilda is colored in Distress Ink Stormy Sky and Black Soot.










The Designer Paper is from Fancy Pants Designs called "Spirited" Happy Together. I used both sides and added bazzil basics pale green and Stampinups Sahara Sand to layer with.
I used a variety of Butterflies from Paper Trey Ink, Tim Holtz and Stampinup. The Tiny Tags are from Paper Trey Ink and the flower is from Magnolia.  I embellished with crystals and pearls I already had.  The ribbon is from the Ribbon Girl, her blinkie is on my side bar.
The sentiment on the Doohickey Die Tag is from LOTV and the one on the front of the card is from out local craft store.  I distressed the edges in Stampin up inks.

Thank you for stopping by, hope you had a wonderful Holiday weekend.
