Texas Tuesday - Bluebonnet Time!!

It's getting to be the time of year when I especially miss Texas. When all the bluebonnets begin making their appearance. Oh how I miss the fields of blue! So today I'm playing with one of my Texana Designs bluebonnets - if I can't be in Texas looking at the real thing, I'll bring them into my stamp room!

I stamped the Jam'n Bluebonnet on watercolor paper, and used Distress ink and my water brush to watercolor the flower. I have the framed version of this stamp and just cut it out, but there's an unframed version available as well, here. The background was created using more Distress inks and the Texas Bluebonnets Background stamp, finished off with a little Glimmer Mist. You'll have to trust me on the glimmer, it doesn't show in the photo. ;-) The fabby sequins are from Neat & Tangled.

I scribbled the little black "frame" around the background panel to play along with the latest Catered Crop Recipe Swap! There's still time to create your own card with a frame and join us!

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. So pretty Libby! Love how you used these stamps!

  2. Love the card, Libby. I was in Texas once when the blue bonnets were blooming.

  3. Yes, we love our bluebonnets here in Texas. :) Your card is beautiful!

  4. Love your flowers and the background really makes them look dramatic.

  5. Gorgeous card, Libby! I remember you sharing photos of the bluebonnets blooming in Texas and they are an amazing sight! Your card is gorgeous! Love all the beautiful layers and your colouring of the bluebonnet! Hopefully some day you'll get back to Texas again for bluebonnet season!


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
