If I Could Bottle This I Would

Today we have a very happy, cheery color combo over on the Design Dollies to perk up your Monday:  black, white, and yellow.  Be sure to check out what the Design Team made for your inspiration. 

The flowers are fingerpainted and then stitched.  I love this self-portrait, the camera held at arm's length.  So funny! 

~closeup detail~

I used my Sketchy Thursdays April Guest Design Team sketch and even the prompt.  I did mist and paint, athough not pink as directed. 

The April GDT Challenge is closed but you can still hop on over to cast your vote for your favorite. 

Have a great Monday!


Details:   Studio Calico stamp (coffee ring); Autumn Leaves Stampology ink; Making Memories paint; Maya & Glimmer Mists; Zig Millennium pen; DCWV cardstock; thread.
