Isn't She Lovely!

Well......I wondered if I needed them and when DH said he would 'treat' me.....Of course I needed them...all I can say is that I LOVE the new Oxide Inks and 'yes' I did need them.

My first play (which you will see later in the week) was a little cautious and I only used 2 colours,but this time my background used  Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet, Broken China and Vintage Photo with lots of water and drying between all the layers.  I also used Iced Spruce DI with the Flourish stencil.

I don't have the Paper Dolls, so after a little search, I found this image on the internet and fell in love with her expression and thought these quotes seemed just right

DH has realised  he shouldn't have  been so generous -  he thinks he will see even less of me - but maybe that's a good thing!!

Well that's all for now,  I need more practice with these inks!

I am entering this at:
