Globe traveller

Hello sweet bloggers,

Thanks for the lovely comments on my last post. Down below is my card to show you for today...The image is a stamp from Penny Black which I have coloured with water colour pencils. The striped paper has been recycled - it is from a news magazine. Doesn't it match perfectly?
The flowers have been punched out of papers that were sponged with Aleeza's paints while we were  painting together. Then I sprayed them with water and crumpled them to get this dreamy effect. Put in some punched flower centres and flourishes which were sponged with Tim Holtz peeled paint. 
I had lots of fun gluing the flowers on to this card and I do think this is the maximum number of flowers I have ever added on a card. Lol. Was in a generous sort of mood. Lol.

Would love to hear what you think of my card - I do think that the two blobs of rouge on her cheeks could have been avoided. And I need to learn how to colour in skin better.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Any way off to play with Aleeza now.

Lots of love,

Monica

Love it Monica, looks like she ready for her next destination. When you learn about colouring cheeks, I would love hear as I always end up with two red circles.

Love this! Looks like she is fun to hang out with. :) The recycled paper is perfect. I often get distracted when thumbing through magazines, by the colors & designs. I start to think what I could use the paper for...
