Scribble Flowers

Good morning everyone!

It's time for a new challenge at Sparkles Monthly and the theme this month is...
Floral Extravaganza.
I made a couple of cards to add my donation box and they feature a beautiful image from Scribbles Design. They are colored with Copics and I added detailing with a white Posca Pen. I used Pink & Main dies for the stitched rounded rectangles and MFT dies for the fishtail flags. The papers and enamel dots are from my stash and to finish them up I added a die cut sentiment. 
I hope you can join us and don't forget to pop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of the teams beautiful cards!

Too cute for words!

Good morning everyone! 

Today I have a fun art journal page to share with you featuring my sweet and adorable fur babies! I love these two so much! :) 
I created a watercolor wash background with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Brushed Corduroy Distress inks. I stamped the paw prints using an Inky Antics stamp, the dogs are from Tim Holtz 'Crazy Dogs' stamp set and were lightly colored with Copics. The words are from a piece of 12 x 12 DP, I tore out the words that I wanted and then added distress ink to the edges. To finish my page I added the year and their names using my Dymo label maker. 

Well, that's all for now... thanks so much for stopping by!
Take care, Tammy
