Tanya *Day 4* and TD Sneak Peek

Got lots to share today, so lets get started! Here's our GORGEOUS inspiration card by Tanya: I love the oval with the sentiment and all those pretty purple butterflies! The text background adds to the elegance of this card. It truly is a masterpiece!
Here is my take:
All stamps on this card are by Hero Arts. I began by stamping the background with VersaMark ink on white paper and heat embossing with clear embossing powder. Next I added Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, and Dusty Concord Distress Ink directly over the embossed image. After applying the ink, I lightly wiped the embossed areas with a baby wipe. The sentiment was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the butterfly punch is by Fiskars.

On another note, Tiffany Doodles has some really great images releasing this week and they will be available for purchase tomorrow. Let's just say they are tweet-erific and GOBS of fun to color with Copics. More info HERE on the Tiffany Doodles blog and go HERE to purchase them tomorrow. Here's my card:
And the next two are sneak peeks at the images Eastern Bluebird Couple and Warbler with Cherry Blossoms. I haven't had time to put them on cards yet, but thought you might want a peek....
Thanks so much for popping by! See you tomorrow with our last charming card by Tanya. I must admit, I'm bummed to see our week ending. :(

I'm sure I sound like a broken record, but you are such an amazing talent, Jill! Your work is always so fabulous and always true to your own style! Tanya's card is so lovely and delicate...I love how you interpreted it with bold design and color, so "Jill"!

Wowee! I love that first one you did with the resist and applying the ink pad directly to the cardstock afterwards. The contrast is stunning! I have this stamp and it makes me want to pull it out right now and try it for myself! :)
