Flowers for You

     It's been a long, long time since I used an image from All Dressed Up and I decided it was time to correct that.  I'm sending a packet of wildflower seeds to a friend of mine for her blog anniversary and needed a card to enclose with them.  This adorable image of the two mice seemed perfect.


     I started with a dry-embossed, lavender card base.  I had already decided to make this really CAS since I have to mail it and there will be a packet of seeds inside it.  I didn't want to add to the thickness of the envelope by adding lots of embellishments.

     This time, I colored with my watercolor paints and a brush.  I know, I know - I always use my ProMarkers but this image just lent itself to water coloring.   However, if it makes you feel better, I used a ProMarker to ink the edges of the image and the sentiment.  :-D

     When it came to the sentiment, I decided to add a bit of glam by heat embossing it with silver EP.  I printed the sentiment, then used a Versa-Mark pen to write over the letters, and then added the EP.  Here's a close up since it doesn't show really well in the photo above.
