Carnation Pixie

Hello there!  It's my day to host over on the A Day for Daisies blog today.  I've made a card using the super cute Carnation Pixie. 

I created the background by mixing texture paste and Glimmer Mist spray in Viva Pink.  And then I used a stencil to create this funky background.  And I finished it off with some Sheer Shimmer Spritz for added sparkle power.  I love how the design pops off the black.

Time to Blossom

Hello there!  I've created a card using a great new stamp set from Kennedy Grace Creations.  I colored the flowers with Tim Holtz Distress markers and used a Ranger water brush to create a watercolor effect.  Then I cut it into three pieces and put it back together again leaving a small space between the pieces.
