Clearly Delightful


This card is for the Clearly Delightful challenge found HERE. I used one of Laurie's free digital images. My dd & I got to meet Laurie & her kids last fall. Though Laurie's dd & mine are about 7 years apart in age, they have that "kid connection" where you refer to the parents as so & so's mom or dad. My Natalie has said now more than once, "Abigail's moms draws the BEST animals." I agree! You can find her digis HERE. She has a few freebies & if you play in her monthly challenges she offers a free digi stamp. This month is a set!

This was the sketch:

I used watercolor paper & dye ink markers (mainly Stampin' Up) with an aqua brush.

Other stuff: dp is a set from Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby, CM circle & oval cutters, Martha stewart daisy edge punch, ribbon is from Michaels. The top words are part of the free digi stamp. I tried to match the fonts & did a computer generated saying on the bottom oval. Cardstock is variety from my stash. Sorry I don't know more details about the paper.

Thanks for flying by!
