This week over at the High Hopes Blog
our fabulous Diva....
has created and amazing
tutorial on how she colors with

"Distress Ink"

For those of you who know Sirpa ...
I'm sure you will agree is a brilliant colorist
no matter what medium she is using!!!

Be sure to pop on over to the
High Hopes Blog and check her tutorial out!!

I created a card this week for the SPRINGSC11
over at Splitcoast Stampers.

I am using these fabulous images
by artist
Laurie Furnell

Spring Birdhouse Garden
Bunny by Birdhouse

I embossed the images with black and
painted them with Tombows.
I used Heavenly H20's on the bunnies.
I used my oval nesties to cut the hole and a
CB folder for the kraft background.
I used my EK Success scallop border punch
for the green side borders.
I cut out some extra flowers and added some
flatbacked pearls.

Here is the inside

I hope you like it!!!

Have a fabulous day
Thanks so much for stopping by.....
