Here's Cheers!

I've had this image for ages but never really got around to colouring her up (why I have no idea, she is just gorgeous!) but with the closing down of Kenny K, I thought it was about time. I'm sorry to see them go too.

Pineapples



I had to make a few quick card to have on hand so I used one of the recent magazine freebies to throw together a Thank You, Birthday & generic card. I did a quick water colour background using similar colours before stamping & die cutting the images. Then finished off with a little splash of sparkle.


 



Card ingredients include:


Stamp & Die: Totally Tropical set
Paper: random paper from stash, watercolour paper, cardstock
Inks: Vivid Orange & Turquoise
Others: watercolour crayons, sequins
