I created a card using Krafty Love. I stamped her in our Totally Taupe ink and painted her with watercolours. I created a paint spatter background by dropping in watercolour paint and using a straw to blow bursts of colour across the page. The sentiment was stamped in Wicked Black ink. I also used our Beautiful Burlap stencil with Mermaid Melody ink  and another sentiment on the inside of my card.




Here's the hop list:


Happy shopping!

I pulled out my watercolours (combination of Daniel Smith, M Graham, Qor and Winsor and Newton) to paint the sweet little girl elf . I stamped the sentiment in our Marvelous Mocha ink.

TREAT YOURS-ELF stamp set on SALE... be sure to scoop it up today at 40% off!
