Thinking Of You

Hello Friends! Thanks for stopping by!

Today I am posting my first commissioned work.  This was made for a very special lady and I'm crossing my fingers she will like it.
This is Tilda Blowing Hearts.  I stamped this image using London Fog by Memento and colored her with Copic markers.  This is the first time I've tried coloring a lighter outlined image.  I have seen it done many times before and like the effect, but I wish now that I would have colored the eyes a bit darker.
I made the daffodils with a punch and half of a scalloped circle.  I just love making my own flowers.
As you can see from the side the daffodils stand up pretty high, almost a half-inch, so the fence and banner had to be popped up with some really thick foam dots to achieve a uniform look.

I have so many cards in the works right now that I must get back to work on them.  I thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek and would appreciate you leaving a comment so very much.  Have a great day and better tomorrows!
