Cherished


All the patterned paper on this card is Daisy D's. I am so sad that they have met their demise. This stuff is closer to card stock than paper, seriously! Gorgeous and high quality. How could they go under? I've had these sweet Magnolias for five months or more, and they had not been inked yet. They are a blast to color! I've been using my Prismas and Gamsol lately. I think the learning curve is shorter on this technique than on any watercoloring technique. I've been working on my wc for over a year, and I'm still not Anna Wight. That hardly seems fair to me. I guess now I'll have to work with my Prismas for a year and then come to grips with the fact that I'm still not Artfully Ila!! However, I'm not too depressed about it!! I just tell myself that I have other skills. It may not be true, but that's what I tell myself. Just kidding. But seriously.

Oh my goodness, this is elegant and cute at the same time. Love the rich colors and texture. The lace is a wonderful accent and, of course, your stitching is the best!
