Periwinkle Hopes

I used a sentiment from the Old Tea Rose stamp set (Flourishes) and a bunch of Cheery Lynn Designs dies to create this card. I also pulled out the Periwinkle Twinkling H2O from the Carnivale set to color the Polynesian Sails Oval die.  I used the Twinkling H2Os Tutorial (Aug/Sept 2003 issue) from the Technique Junkies Newsletter to guide me on how to paint with the Periwinkle Twinkling H2O.  You can see the gorgeous shimmer in the picture below.

The Cheery Lynn Designs dies that I used are:

Polynesian Sails Oval
Chicken Wire
Chrysanthemum Strip
Fanciful Flourish
Rose, Miniature
Sweet William Strip

It was so much fun to mix and match all the different flowers and colors. I hope you play around with your dies and see what different combos you can come up with. :-)  You can save money when you shop at Classy Cards 'n Such by using this code, Holly-10, when you check out.
