Ready to see what I made? It was hard deciding what image to choose as Bugaboo has so many that I just LOVE! I was really torn between doing something cutsie and fun or lean more towards pretty. In the end I decided on one of my favorite images.....

I printed my image from "my pictures" on my computer (I chose the wallet sized option) onto white cardstock I had put into my printer. The tulips just seems to need to be watercolored so I pulled out my pencils and gamsol but then changed my mind and pulled out my ink pads and water brush instead. I dabbed ink onto a clear block then picked it up using a water brush. Even though I just used regular old Michael's brand cardstock instead of watercolor paper it came out great. I'm feeling pretty darn accomplished about this little card because it was was all (except the card base and doily) made from scraps!! I'm always trying to use those up and it usually seems impossible! 
Please link your creations at The Shabby Tea Room by Sunday, May 25th to play along. Winner and Tea Time Terrific Top Three will be announced Monday, May 26th. We will have an all-new challenge for you to play along with on the 26th as well, so please come back and visit with us again for another chance to win!
