Sending you smiles!

Hi hens!  This splattered background idea came from Alison at The Alley Way Stamps.  Seriously, she has the most creative mind.  How she comes up with these things is beyond me.  I wish I could.  Oh well, good thing I have Alison to watch on YouTube!!  LOL!!  Anyhoo, she made her own spray mist by combining acrylic paint and rubbing alcohol in a mini spray bottle.  Hey, sounds cool to me so I wanted to give it a go.  And here's my result...  BAM!  Is this AWESOME or what?  Whoot-whoot!! (or should I say hoot-hoot!) LOL! 

Now I wanted to add something just as fabulous on top!  This is a little "Print & Cut" image from the Silhouette on line store.  I thought she was SUPER CUTE!  Ok, so I opened the image in my Silhouette software and selected print, making sure to print the registration marks too.  Then I just put the cardstock on my cutting mat and sent it to my Silhouette Cameo selecting the cut feature this time.  Yoila!  Perfectly cut image!  I print and cut 3 of these and used the other two images to fussy cut for layering. I layered the wings, hat, and eyes for a cute 3D look!  

I stamped the sentiment and balloon onto some scratch cardstock and adhered them with some foam tape.  Now to add a little interest, I added some DIY enamel dots, rhinestones, and some glitter using my Wink of Stella pen.  To finish, I rounded the corners and added some Glossy Accents to the eyes and balloon.  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  Hope you hens have a GREAT day!  {{{hen hugs}}}
