Oh So Nice!!

I wanted to do a layout using Swirlydoos products that was based on a sketch made by one of SDoos awesome DT members and I finally did. This layout was made with the new March kit and I based it on a sketch made by Robin aka Lovestocreate.
One of the best things about joining Swirlydoos is having access to some AWESOME new techniques and tutorials!! This flower I did on this layout was made from a tutorial that Lisa aka StarSailorScrapper did over at SDoos. She did the tutorial using paper, however, I used a blue metal sheet from Ten Seconds Studio. So thank you Lisa for this awesome flower!!
These wood looking letters were actually done using white Creative Imaginations chipboard letters. I used Ranger "Ginger" colored alcohol ink and let them dry. Then I sanded the tops which gave them this really neat grainy wood look. I think they went really well with the photo too.

Check out my spot coloring tutorial in the previous post. It's really pretty easy to do and it jazzes up a photo a new fun way!!

Thank you for stopping by and God Bless!!
