Sneak Peek – Toadstool for Two

I just love Lili of the Valley's bunnies and this one is no exception.  I needed to make an engagement card and think Toadstool for Two just fits the bill.  Not long now till they go on sale woohoo.

I have used some new Papermania papers that I picked up the other day, this set is called Tea House.  I also picked up Pampered Pets which is just as delish as this set.  Lots of pastels and the Tea House set has lots of dolly mixture prints, soooo pretty.  The flowers started off life as white blooms, and I followed this tutorial again and made the flowers up.  I also mixed my own “glimmer mist”  wooo get me lol.  I filled a spritzer bottle with water just over 3/4 full, added distress inks in Fired Brick, Mahogany and Worn Lipstick till I was happy with the red then added a few dollops of Perfect Pearls Interference Red and voila, me own bling for just a few coppers.  Don’t think I will be buying the real McCoy any more when I can do my own in any colour I want.  Right I’m off to buy more spritzer bottles so I can play!!
