Dream Big Ellie

     I have another Art Impressions Zoo Babies stamp to share with you today.  This one is called "Dream Big" and I pulled out my Distress inks and watercolor paper for a little variety.  I made a bit of a duh boo boo on this card.  You haven't been able to see it in any of my Zoo Baby cards, but I gave each of their bows a nice coat of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen.  I wasn't thinking about the wet pen diluting my Distress ink. So... my shading on the bow kind of went everywhere.  LOL  Isn't this the sweetest little ellie you ever saw.
     It's a brand new week and I hope it's a wonderful one for you.
     Be Blessed!
