I finished reading A Game of Thrones the other night and I'm officially hooked on the Songs of Fire and Ice series. A Clash of Kings is next and I'm already 50 pages in... love it! If any of you have been on the fence about jumping into these books I'm giving them two thumbs way up.
Ok, so I just got some of the new Kraftin Kimmie Flower Girls last week and I had to ink up Poppy first. Normally I would have had a ton of fun coloring her up like an orange California Poppy since they are one of my most favorite flowers evah. But as I was looking at her another favorite flower came to mind... one with a much more spring-ish look to it too, the Morning Glory! And look at that, more blue... yep, me and blue are bonding, LOL. But there was no help for it because she had to be that perfect Heavenly Blue shade.
The papers are all random scraps that I pulled from the handy scrap bags and I couldn't believe my luck when I found this old silk flower in my stash. It wasn't the right color at first but I was able to use an air spritzer with one of my Copics to give it the look I needed. Then it was time to hunt for something metal to add to my card because I wanted to enter this week's Kraftin Kimmie Heavy Metal challenge. I was about to give up my search when I came across these old flower charms that I think actually look a lot like Morning Glories... score!
Well friends, I should wrap this up and go get ready for work. I hope your day is a great one! :)
