new artists coming

Hi my friends.

Squigglefly is super excited to introduce THREE NEW ARTISTS! They all
make their debut on Squigglefly this Saturday. We think you'll love
their work.

Paulette Rich Long
Nate Owens
Diane Knott

and more new talent coming soon!

Be sure to check the Squigglefly website on Saturday to see the first images from these new artists.

My card today uses Flowers Set by Lynn Stansbery. I printed two copies of the daisies, colored them with copic markers and then cut them out -- even the leaves and stems -- yup, crazy... lol. Seriously, my coloring sometimes gets a bit messy -- especially when I doze off with an open marker in my hand (*snort*) -- and it becomes necessary to cut things out. Anyway, cutting out the flowers allows a bit of rearranging, which makes me happy. The flower closest to the bottom is adhered with dimensional tape.

My background piece is created by stamping Sanded (SU) in more mustard, then Print Pattern (SU), also in mustard, and French Filigree (SU) in tea dye distress ink. Then I used a tiny butterfly (A Muse) to randomly add a bit of tempting turquoise. I stamped the butterfly off once to get a lighter color on the background.

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day.
