Welcome to The Ton's Spring 2017 Release Blog Hop! If you are hopping along from the beginning you should be arriving from Justine Hovey's Blog.

Here is my first card: Using the new Sunflower Bouquet . Heat embossed with Gold EP then Colored with Ziggys..now available in the Boutique!! Sentiment is inked with Noir..my FAVORITE black ink:)  Double Stitched Rectangle die LG used to trim to a perfect A2 card.

For my next card, I used the Wildflower Banner stamp as a border buy inking and stamping on the edge of the white CS.  
For coloring with Alcohol markers the Caviar Hybrid ink works beautifully without ant smudging. I trimmed the panel down with the Double Stitched Rectangle die Small..I like how this makes a perfect 1/4" border on an A2 card base.Sentiment is from The New Pretty stamp set inked with Caviar. Embellished with Blue Lagoon Couture Mix:)


My Final Card from the Spring 2017 Release: Uses Dearest Peony watercolored with Ziggys. 
  • For this piece I wanted to use No-line coloring so I stamped the image in the palest gray available in the shop, Crystal Pewter onto watercolor paper. 
  • After coloring the bloom and leaves, I made a mask to I could create a mixed media BG
  • Made a wash of color using the ziggys. 
  • Swiped Distress Metallic stain Pewter over parts of the panel. 
  • Then stamped butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies 1, 2, and 3 in Cobalt Breeze
  • Inked up The New Pretty in Found Topaz
  • The tint sentiment words are inked with Light Onyx
  • Finished with Blue Lagoon Couture Mix as embellishment.
