Today's hop list!
Have a great day!
  This Calla Lily is a new image from the Zenspirations Collection by Joanne Fink. She has a really fun style and most of her sentiments are inspirational or encouraging in nature. 
I made a CAS card - with no bow (ACK!) - so it can be mailed easily. I kept a few of the flowers "outside the box" to add a little more interest. I adhered the patterned paper to heavyweight white card stock and then cut out my shaped card base. 

 I created a soft background with BG000. I kept smoothing it over, using the side of the super brush tip, adding additional layers of color to create a little depth.

 Here are the remaining colors for the image. I did use the 0 pen to blot at the color in the flowers. 


On the inside, I added one of Dina's new sentiments from the Maya Clear Set. A few little die cut flowers is a quick add on embellishment. I always keep a little dish of small die cuts like this on my desk.
