High Hopes Wagonful of Blessings

This image is so sweet; and totally fun to color. I colored it two ways--KIN's (I do supplement the KIN's with Prismacolors since the colors are somewhat limited) and GooGone and watercolor pencils and a waterbrush.

I won this stamp in one of the Dutch Dare Challenges, along with the paper I used in these cards, both patterned and textured cardstock. I'm not 100% sure, but I think its the SEI Dill Blossom line, and boy do I LOVE it. The flowers remind me of Queen Anne's Lace, my Mammaw always has some of it at the edges of her yard. We used to cut a few stems and put it in a vase with food coloring and watch the blooms change from white.

I also used lots of stickles on one of the images and I love how it gives it that WOW!-ness.

These are some of the cards I finished on Saturday, World Card Making Day.
