More details of the 'hop' and order list at the end of this post.

Here are my designs using Aurora Wings Ballerina image. I loved the image so much that I made a birthday card for my Mum with it and will be heading down to Devon on the 4 hour journey to deliver it in person tomorrow, weather permitting!!! I printed the ballerina onto watercolour paper. so I could use my old favourite watercolour palette paints. Once the paint was dry (very quick with watercolours), I went over areas with Stickles glitter glue . The swirls/ corners are spellbinder dies and I cut the sentiment on my Cricut mini from watercolour card  which I again painted and highlighted with Stickles . The background on the blue card was made by using watercolours on an Indigo Blue flourish stamp and I hand wrote the sentiment with blue calligraphy ink and highlighted with a sakura pen.
