There will also be a Blog Hop on April 1st showcasing all the new releases and a chance for you to win the whole set!

Now back on to my bean =)

I am on a daisy flower kick and I had to use them again in this card. There were daisies on the DP so I HAD to and I also paired them up with some tiny pink roses. The image is colored with my Copic markers and I incorporated some leaf branches and vellum onto the card. To add some glitter, I used Stickles in Fruit Punch to her ears and dress. If you look closely, you can see the sparkle in her eyes are stars! Adorable!

She is Cheshire Bean obviously it's a Alice in Wonderland theme, so I pulled this image from the internet as inspiration for my next card.

This is what I came up with. Totally a complete opposite from my previous card, it's like Day & Night. The background is a mixture of blue/turquoise/black acrylic paint that I laid on the card with my Gelli Plate (video of my first try with this gadget here). 

I then sprayed the background with my Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays in Midnight Rendezvous Raven and Royal Peacock Fire for some sparkly shimmer. The stamped some forest-like images in black and outlined it with my white gel pen. I doodled some stars in the sky. I really like how this turned out. Cheshire Bean is colored with my Copic markers.

So there are my cards using Cheshire Bean. These are going to sell out fast, I just know it! This whole new release is so freakin' amazing! Don't forget to go to the TGF blog to enter to win her. 

Have an awesome day!
