Marvellous Monday - Motivet dt

Hello,

How was your weekend? Mine was great. The weather was glorious and spent a lovely time in the garden. The birdsong at the moment is beautiful and watching the baby blue tits in the birdbath is just so cute. Poor Phillip is now recovering from his suffering from watching the football and less said about that the better!


I have made a card today with another Motivet image. He is so cute and I have coloured him with distress ink pads. He is stamped with Archival coffee onto Waterford watercolour paper 300gsm hp.  The background is distressed with antique linen. Everything  on my card has been distressed with vintage photo. The stickles are  Star dust and Tiara. The tag has been distressed with vintage photo and sprayed with Iridescent gold glimmer mist. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.


I thank you so very much for looking and for your visit.

Have a wonderful week!

love

Hi Kim!
My Mother would have loved this card. She loved Teddy bears and your one is so cute and colored beautifully. I love the arrangement. The flower looks so lovely and I love the lace down the side.
I guess that sentiment on the card doesn't apply to your Phillip and his football. I hope he feels better.
