One Big Egg!


I borrowed this set from a friend of mine (Thanks Cindy) and stamped a bunch of images on watercolor paper. I watercolored this image with SU markers and a blender pen. It was then mounted on Really Rust, then on a pretty double sided paper from American Crafts called Merry-Go-Round. I just loved the big happy flowers on it!
-
I added some ribbon from the Winter Mini "Flirty" collection. Out of all the ribbons this one was my least favorite... it's so bulky that I've had a hard time trying to decide what to do with it. I do like it attached to the Hodgepodge Hardware bucklet though. I added a cut out flower from th background paper and attached it with a jump ring.

I mailed the prize out to Amy today... I hope you like it!! I will be doing another drawing on Wednesday 1/31 for one of the projects posted this week (runs Wed. thru Tues) - so let me know what you think of my projects. I would also love suggestions on what you would like to see on this blog. I post basic details on my cards and creations, but I can go more in depth on any of the projects. Just let me know! Thanks for looking!

Great colors. Really, the ribbon works well with this one ... maybe because of the rich colors and the large background print. The buckle is the perfect touch. I love visiting your blog - your ideas are fresh and you have a great way of changing it up so that your readers crave more. Keep doing what your doing.
