Life is Beautiful!

Hi Everyone!

Trust you all had a wonderful Easter weekend with your love ones.
We had a very peaceful weekend here in Vancouver,
the weather is just gorgeous, can't ask for more.

Couple of weeks ago, I purchased 3 new Crafts and Me stamps,
images of artist Zindy Nielsen's drawings.
When I first saw these images, I instantly fell in love with them.
I inked up and water colored all 3 images as soon as I received them.
I will share the cards with you in separate postings.

This card showcases the "Shh Now" stamp image.
I water colored the stamp image with TH Black Soot Distress Ink Pad.

I used the April sketch from CLP, and 
the color theme 'Pretty in Pink" from Crafts and Me's current challenge.

The DPs are Pion Designs and Memory Box.
Die used is Memory Box. Butterfly punch is Martha Steward.
Mini paper clip is from TH idea-ology.
The large mauve rose was made by me.

The following items are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
"Katherine" Ivory Scallop Fine Cluny Lace;
"Josephine" Cream Fine Double Scallop Lace;
Ivory Button Twine; K&G Ivory Beaded Rose;
WOC Pale Pink Lily Flower; WOC ivory Hip Rose Bud.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy this visit.
Have a great week!


I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:

WOW Katie!!! Your card is stunning!!!! Love the pearl spray and gorgeous image!!!! Your black and white colouring is sublime. To answer your question, the stamp is Happy Edwin and it was pretty easy to remove his hat as it was already off his head. Hugs, Brigitte

Hi Katie,
I also love the Crafts & Me Stamps, but I prefer Hannah Lynn's images, this one's very pretty though, I've seen Tracy using it in the past. Beautiful take on the sketch and all in all a very beautiful card. The rose looks gorgeous; I'm too lazy to make my own embellishments, LOL. Thanks for joining us both @CLP and LLC this month! Hugz, Sandy
