Wonder and Joy


Ok... I'll say it... I think this is the ca-YOOT-ist image so far from TAC's pre-release bundle for the upcoming Serendipity Magalogue (aka Spring Maggie)!  There were a ton of stamp sets, but I'm tellin' ya'... this set is a MUST HAVE for anyone who likes to paper piece or color.


I fussy-cut a sheet of Mimi dp to make it look like little Miss Joy is perched on a flowery pink vine in the middle of imaginative garden.  Freakin' adorable, right?!  I KNOW!  Check out those rosey cheeks and the look of wonder on her face.

You can't really see in the photos, but I used pink & green glitter pens on her hair ribbons, cuffs of her pants & the bottom edge of her dress.


Stamps:  Wonder and Joy (coming soon!)
Paper:  More Mimi double-sided dp, White UltraSmooth, Mimi & Mia's Cottage cardstocks
Ink:  Palette Noir
Colorant:  Prismacolors with mineral oil blending
Other:  Cloud Scissors, Pop Dots, sheer pink ribbon



Why yes... it DID take some time to cut her out... thanks for asking ;)  The ol' craft knife had to come out for this one... but o-so-worth-it.  Pop dots are a wonderful thing.  I think I'm gonna keep this card for myself :)


What do you think?
