Saturated Canary Hula Hoop Love

Waaaay back when I was a young girl I Hula Hooped with my friends until our sides ached!  Those fun simple toys to exercise the middle, well I could use it now! lol   Coloring is so peaceful and relaxing and I really wanted to make a vintage style card that was subtle so this is what I have to share with you today.

Hula Hoop Love by Saturated Canary is so sweet and I love her tattered style.  I used Pion Papers from the Shoreline collection. Distressing and a bit of Gesso around the edges helped me achieve the Vintage affect I wanted.

She is colored in Copics.
I used Magnolia's envelope edge die twice and added a Tim Holtz pin and ticket. The fairy and flowers are from Prima.

I was playing around with my photo shop program. I like the old time photo look and it popped the color beautifully on the image.  Fun to experiment a bit.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  You make me smile!! Big!
Hugs and Blessings to you,
