Thorougly Modern Millie

I went to a wedding shower for my neighbor's daughter not too long ago, and the shower invitation was SO cute that I've had it sitting on my desk since the shower. And as you know, I don't need anything extra on my desk.

It was on a watercolor texture paper, and the sweet image looked like watercolor as well.

When I saw today's Mix-Ability challenge on Splitcoast to create modern art, I knew exactly what I had been saving her for.

I carefully cut out the cute little girl image and then put it onto one of my FAVORITE reanimations - a piece of paper I use to clean my brayer on while I'm gel printing.

Half the time when I'm printing I think that my brayer cleaning sheet is prettier than my prints! Probably because it's not planned and coordinated - it just happens. I loved this piece because the flame colors so perfectly matched the girl's hair.

Simple & cute - no stamping. Hard to see here but there's glitter in the center of the flowers and on her headband. The original invitation is from Bella Ink Designs.

I decided that she is indeed, thoroughly modern art.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love it!!! I also love the idea of using the paper you use to clean off your brayer as a background. I really appreciate you sharing your creativity. I am always so inspired by you! Have a blessed day! ♥Anita

I completely feel the same about my brayer cleaning sheets. In fact, I used several for this year's (2014 DTGD cards). I've loved going through some of your old posts this morning. And yes, indeed, she is throughly modern. I LOVE this card!
