You're So Sweet...

Wow...I have been MIA on this blog!!! 
Sorry about that. It's been a rough year for me medically. Cancer diagnosis, surgery, everything that could go wrong...did, follow up surgery....I'M DONE!!! 
I also still take care of my grand babies, and just don't have time for pics and posting. I do find time to play, however. I'm down to one grand baby so maybe I can go back and post what I've been making.

For today, I have a card using water coloring. Water does it's own thing, lol, and I'm learning to just let it go. Also, drying in between and layering. Still not happy at times, but practice is the key!

I created a circle of water, and began to add my colors. I used Distressed Inks for this. Lots of drying, and going back with more. Slow process for me, but it's fun!
I then cut them out using dies from MCT,
I cut the background layer using Lawnfawn rectangle dies. Taped off the edges and went to town with the inks. 
The tag sentiment is stamped on a banner die from Avery Elle called Wonky Stitches. 

I love the fun colors on this and think it actually came out pretty good. I popped up the circles on dimensional adhesive. Tucked the ice cream cone behind and added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

The only thing I wish is the sparkly glitter on the vanilla ice cream showed up better. It's so sparkly in real!
Anyway, I hope you like my card and I'll be taking pics and post as I get them finished.

Here's your shopping list.
