Poppy Thank You

Happy Monday!  I missed last week's deadline entry for the Dynamic Duo's green/yellow challenge.  I had an hour before the deadline and I was going to race and take a picture, edit, post to blog, enter challenge and then I thought........REALLY?  All for a challenge?  Perspective Maria.......perspective!

So....a few days late...here's the card anyway!
I LOVE this Lulu with Poppies! One of my FAVORITE Stamping Bella images!  This time I colored her with Distress Markers and I really have to admit........I still don't LOVE these markers!  I feel I get better watercoloring with the Distress Ink Pads. Oh well!

I embossed a Nestie die on the green layer and then layed the die cut layer on top! I really like this look!  I added a few gems and a Hero Arts sentiment.

Hope you have a great day!!!

Thanks for your visit!

She is lovely... super colouring inspite of the distress markers not being an enjoyable experience.
Sorry that I haven't been able to post the info on my blog. Will do so soon.

Love the embossed Nestie with the matching die cut & I think your coloring looks great! I'm glad to hear someone else has come to the same conclusion when a challenge deadline is coming too fast!

One of my fav images too. I have never tried the markers or distress inks for that matter so I am impressed you can do such beautiful work with so many different mediums. Go you!
