Blog Takeover: Alice

Hello, every one! Alice Wertz here. I am thrilled and honored to take over Jill's blog for a day. Thank you so much for inviting me, Jill! You are amazing and I hope I can do your blog justice. =) Here is the card that I drew my inspiration from.


Here is my card:

I used the adorable Garden Visit from Penny Black for my card and used Jill's design for the layout. 

I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out with a Nestibility die. The sky and grass are colored when the paper was still in the die to give the image a frame.

For the background, I inked a piece of white cardstock with Barn door and Wild Honey distress inks. Hero Arts Flower Dot Pattern is then stamped with both Barn Door and Wild Honey relatively to the inking. I then flicked some water on the piece to get the splotchy look. The sentiment is also from Hero Arts.

That's all I have. Hope I didn't disappoint you. =) Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a lovely day!

hugs,
alice
