Lily and Tweet Sweet Sweet Sweet


Sweet is the word that I use to describe this image from Pink Cat Studio. I just think Tweet the bird is so whimsical and adorable and well, Lily, she is pretty darn cute herself!!!! With all the snow on the ground, I felt like putting a little spring in my step and created this pastel themed card. Using some Scrap Designer Paper......... I believe it is from one of the DCWV glitter packs and inspired by the little flowers in the image, I got the idea to mount my sentiment on the Daisy, which is from my much neglected SU pretties kit. I continued with the daisy theme by punching a border with a Martha Stewart Border Punch, layering onto my cardstock colours of celery and bashful blue.




I coloured the image with my Copics. Hey did you know that if you run your colourless blender over an area before you colour, you can get a lighter saturation of the shade and create a watercolour effect??? Well you sure can!!!! I dotted up her fancy dress with some white gel pen, glittered her ribbons with sakura gelly roll and added a couple of dewdrops for dimension.

What a fun card to create!

Hope you all have a Happy Thursday! and to my friends and readers in the U.S. HAPPY THANKGIVING. Have a safe and happy holiday!
