Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Greetings! I am playing along with a Tiddly Inks Blog Hop today. You can find out all of the details HERE. Last month over at Smeared & Smudged, Tiddly Inks was one of our fabulous sponsors. And I was lucky enough to be the winner of the TI prize! So I got to choose some digis for myself. For the card I am sharing with you today, I used Always the Flower Girl, an image I have been coveting for quite some time! I made this card for my Mom for Mother’s Day.

Isn’t she sweet? I love her. And her wilting dandelions! My kids are always bringing me dandelions, so I knew I had to use her for my Mom. She loves this image too! :)

I used my watercolor markers to color her in. And I have to say, I really like her hair. I made her roots a medium purple, and faded it out to white, which I think is pretty cool. Hmmm…could be something I try when I go grey! ;)

The “m” is acylic and is from Go West. I inked it with pigment ink. The '”m” stands for not only Mom, but Mary as well. It’s nice to have a two-fer!

I added a few dots of Platinum Liquid Pearls (she loves that stuff!), and some pretty paper in happy, Spring colors.

What do you think? Pretty cheery, right? See? I can do cheery! ;) I hope you enjoy the Tiddly Inks hop. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

awesome card, i bet your mum loved it!! thank you for joining us all the tiddly inks hop hugs Lou xxx
Awesome for mom. Love the hair. Don't wait till you go grey try it now. Grey is so freakin' hard to cover and besides purple looks better on younger women - old women are blue haired. lol

Fabulous card. I love the purple watercoloured hair, not sure how it would look on a grown adult, but on this Tiddly - perfect.
