A bunch of firsts!

Today I have a card made with my new Distress re-inkers that my dh gave me for Christmas!  I've never water-colored before, so this was a totally new experience!  I also used my new Magnolia Winter Kit images for the first time and made a bottle tag for the first time.  Here it is, be kind!  :)

Christine, your bottle tag is gorgeous. Love the colours you've chosen and your colouring is beautiful. I've never tried colouring in distress ink--I'm tempted to try though. I still can't decide about this new kit, though you made Tilda look so adorable.
Happy New Year!

Oh that is just beautiful, Christine. Lovely delicate colouring. I think I'd have a very difficult time giving that away, and I'd be watching that nobody messed it up when they take it off the bottle!!!! LOL!!!
