My Thoughts & Prayers.....

It's an exciting week once again!!!

This time around, I am thrilled to be coming to you by way of

It's new release week and the sneak peeks begin...


This beautiful set is called 'Comforting Florals'.
I adore the text fonts on the sentiments
and the floral images.

Creating a card with dimension is so easy with these images.
On this card, I chose to make the flowers dimensional.

On this next set, I chose to make the vase the standout...

I used diamond glaze to give it the effect of water.

What I love about hydrangeas is the way they have 
variegated color throughout their life span..
from the beginning to the very end.
The way I created the variegation on both these 
cards was to use Memento Dew Drop inks 
in different colors, 
beginning with the darkest ink first, then working from 
down to the top of the stem with lighter inks.

You must stop by The Market Street Blog to see the
beautiful inspiration from my fellow designers
Make sure you leave 
a comment on my post!
and join use each night at 7pm CST
for all the new images
leading up to New Release Friday!!!
