Tutu Celebration

Hi!  My eye is almost healed and I'm back to making cards - yay!  Thanks to everyone who expressed concern and well-wishes.  It was so nice to get back into the craft room.

I made this card for my niece's birthday, which I missed last week due to my eye.  I had actually made her another card, but my Hero Arts monthly kit arrived yesterday, so I had to ink it up and make another card which I think she'll like more.


I used the colors from Color Throwdown and created a shaker card.  The background is watercolored oxide inks in Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint.  The tutu is colored with coral-colored Copics and the sentiment is embossed with green embossing powder.

Because it's for a little girl, I went with the More is More philosophy regarding bling 😃


Thanks so much for visiting!

Stamps:  MMH Apr 17 (Hero Arts), Shenanigans (CASual Fridays)
Ink:  Versamark, Intense Black (HA), Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint Distress Oxides
Cardstock:  White, watercolor, acetate

Karren
