A Snuggly Smeared Ink Monday

Good Morning!!  It's snowy again here in the Northeast and while I am DEFINITELY enjoying the winter, the snuggly weather, the "permission" to hunker down and be inside cooking, creating, organizing, whatnot, I am finding that my thoughts are starting to drift towards spring.  Green grass, buds on the trees and bushes, chirping birds and that smell.  You know that springy smell.

So in my creation today I was channeling the upcoming spring by using all greens.  I LOVE the Heart Wings digi set from Smeared Ink.  Super versatile and so fun.  Dark when you need it to be but it can be lively and light as well!!  Hence, it's versatility!!

I kept my card crisp and clean today.  Something I struggle with as I ALWAYS want to add more and more!! 
As you can see, I printed my image (twice) on the larger side, colored it with my Prisma pencils, blended with my Burt's Bees Apricot Baby Oil and paper blender.  I used a variety of greens to make this image pop.

I colored and trimmed the wings out of my second printed image, ran them through my Xyron (image side down) so that the front would be all sticky.  I then sprinkled my glitter on the wings and VOILA!  
I added the wings with a single glue dot where the heart and wings connect.  My sentiment "Absolutely Fabulous" is from PTIs Mixed Mega Messages set.  LOVE IT!! 

I hope you have enjoyed and been brought thoughts of Spring!!  


  1. very springy! (spring - ee?)
    what a great idea to use the xyron and glitter - everything is better with bling!

  2. The CAS look really makes the image pop! Love your creation!
