DCWV Birds & Butterflies Card

 I love this new DCWV stack called Birds And Butterflies! It was easy to play with the March 2016 sketches, and enjoyed fussy cutting one of the little birds and frames out to add.  Added mini ric rac and used a Paper Smooches stamp for the sentiment. I changed the sketch a bit but I liked it this way better when I was moving things around. Hope you like it too! Enjoy!

Paper Smooches Frog Card

Loving Paper Smooches means I love having this new addition and was fast to pull out the froggie for this week! Used Paper Smooches A Little Lovin'. After coloring it with my copics, I tried a new technique for me, which was using Tim Holtz Distress inks of 4 greens after stamping them onto my acrylic block. After adding water in small amounts, I painted the background. Hope you enjoy!
Basic Grey bling for his crown.
