Lil' Inker Designs - February Release Blog Hop Day 3

My first release as part of the Lil' Inker Design team has been amazing.  Thank you for all of the comments, I really appreciate it!!!  If you haven't stopped by yet this week you'll want to scroll down to see days 1 & 2, Lil' Inker has added some amazing new products to their already amazing line!

You should have arrived here from Kristen Foreman's blog.  If not, head to the Lil' Inker Store Blog to start from the beginning.

I have two cards for you today.  The first using the Cloudy Sky Die & Stay Beautiful.



In the negative space of the die cut Cloudy Sky, I colored with Distress Markers on watercolor paper.  Then I brushed over it with an aquapainter to blend the colors and heat set it to dry.  I die cit the Cloudy Sky Die from white cardstock and placed that over the watercolored background.  
I love the subtle washed color in the background.
I popped up a few of those adorable stitched clouds for some added interest.



Did you happen to see Amy Kolling's card yesterday.  My eyes nearly popped out of my head.  Why you ask?  We basically made the same card, how funny is that?  We must have been each others heads or sharing the same wave length something, haha :)  You have to pop over there and see for yourselves!

Here's my card using Stay Beautiful again and Anytime Tags.  I just love these tags.



Time to keep hopping along now.  Next up is Sarah Jay, so head over to her blog because you know she'll have something AMAZING to show you.  Make sure to leave comments along the way too, because Laura is giving away 3 - $15 Store Credits!

Have fun hopping & shopping!  See you tomorrow!
