Blog Hop Starts Here!

Hello everyone!  I am so happy to have for you another wonderful Blog Hop.  The DT have been busy, and I have been busy getting ready to have some new releases for you!  Please come hop along with us!

First up is Sonya!  Sonya is away on a trip so I am posting her "POST" for her :)

HERE'S SONYA!

Welcome to the SECOND "FRED SHE SAID" blog hop!!!

Please, we would love it if you commented on our posts. Here, at "Fred" we have been getting all FLOWERy to hasten the arrival of SPRING! Come see what PRETTIES we have in store for you :)

Also, along the way, you will see a special CODE WORD. Collect them all up! Once you reach the end of the blog hop (which will be the "Fred She Said" Challenge blog), follow the instructions to make your entry and your name will go in for a draw for a $20 Gift Certificate for the Fred She Said Store!

Here is my "Fred She Said" creation:


 
  
  

My card uses the TeaCup Pansies Digi.  I love it and knew the minute that I saw it that I would watercolor it and pop it up!   On the pansy card I printed it out on watercolor paper 4 times and water colored it with Tombow markers.  The white on the teacup is a mica watercolor and I accented the dots along the swag with a white gel pen.  The image was cut out and layered with pop dots to give it the dimension.  The very centers of the pansies were accented with stickles to give it some shine.

My special code word is:
RING

Here is a list of the blog hoppers in case you lose your way:

Sonya said...

Thanks everyone for such sweet encouraging comments!!! It is a lovely set, as well as all of the new images!!!!

I can't wait to play with them myself! Just a tip on watercoloring the digi images - after it comes out of the printer, heat set it with your heat gun a bit so the printer ink doesn't run while watercoloring it. Or, print the night before and test it to see if it is dry before watercoloring. Have fun, looking forward to seeing what you create!

Barbara said...
