Surprise Blog Hop for Michelle

Hi all and welcome! Tosh had this awesome idea to surprise Michelle with a blog hop today to send her some get well wishes. Surprise, Michelle! We love ya and hope you're recovering well.

If you've come here by way of Cammie's blog, then you're right on track with the hop. To start at the beginning, head on over to Tosh's blog.



I stamped my Just a Note sentiment and Breath of Spring image in black craft ink, then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. The leaves were watercolored with a #249 Hunter Green Tombow Marker, the petals and bow were watercolored with Melon Mambo, and the blue highlighting was done with Bashful Blue. The oval is up on foam tape. I stamped, embossed and watercolored an extra bow from the tulip stamp, cut it out, and added it to the main panel with another layer of foam tape. The ivory panel was embossed with my Spellbinders Butterfly Impressabilities die. The card base is Prism Baby Pink Light.

Okay, next up in the hop is Miss Cindy! Head on over and check her out!

Just in case you get lost along the way, here's the full order of the hop:

Tosh
Cammie
me
Cindy
Silke
Amy
Laurie
Becca
Dawn

Have fun hoppin' !

What a great idea to help Michelle get back on her feet! Again, I love the angled look to this card, and I love that the Just-Rite is stamped on the card without a circle! It never occured to me to use the stamps like this!(slapping forehead) Beautiful coloring and great piercing!
