Hello Sunshine!

I just adore this artist for My Favorite Things. Here is a peek at the newest Claire Keay image called "Hello Sunshine" that is going to be released April 5th.
I paired her up with some My Mind's Eye papers and stamped the sentiment in faded jeans distress ink.
I colored her up with my copic markers and then distressed all the edges with a little bit of sand glimmer mist.
I used the RV90 series and the B90 series to color my image....this coordinated very well with the very desaturated colors in my patterned papers.
This is a brand spankin' new die for release as well.

This is called "Pretty Posies", it is a set of 3 sizes of flowers and their centers. I made this shabby flower by spraying them all with sand glimmer mist and then crunching them up and piercing a pearl brad through the center.
Tip:
The flower is so much easier to crunch up and manipulate if you get them wet...so glimmer mist was perfect for this!

That's a cute little fella right there. It's a beautiful card but the flower's color is kinda gloomy. But I guess you just chose it to complement with all the colors used.
