Happy Hump Day!!

I hope you all are having a great week!! We had a FANTASTIC day yesterday ~~ it was in the 70's!! It's only about 50 today, which is still just fine with me!! It's nice to know spring is on its way!! I worked the last 2 days & have been having trouble finding the time to finish this card that I started on Sunday, lol.



The coloring alone took me forever. I decided to try my hand at coloring with Distress Inks. Why? I don't know.....lol....my watercoloring skills stink & I don't know why I thought it would be easier with these inks. Maybe I thought they had magical powers. So....I inked up this lovely Tilda which hadn't seen any love yet.....& found some gorgeous K&Company papers....& went to work. I only have 5 ink pads, so I was pretty limited. Anna, you'll be happy to know that I used my waterbrush AND I used it the proper way....filled with water! I used my heart Nesties behind Tilda....although the very bottom one is hand cut....didn't have one big enough....& I also used my Nesties to cut out & layer the sentiment (which is from SU's Riveting). I don't think you can see it in the picture, but I tried my new Shimmerz on the bottom flower, just to see how it would look. I bought the Angel Wings, because it seemed the most versatile. It definitely shimmers!! I finished it off with 3 Dew Drops in the lower corner.



Here's Tilda's close up......she's happily sitting on her beautiful shimmery ribbon I received recently in a goodie package. I didn't get around to decorating the inside yet....but I will probably use the same layout with the same papers & a big ole heart in the middle :)

Hope you have a wonderful day....I'm off to finish laundry & run some errands....I will be back tomorrow with a recipe (or two) for recipe Thursday!!
