Since I had the day off today I decided to sleep in a little, something that I never do. Not much to report today, just glad to be off of work. I’m going to try and get some things done around the house and maybe see some peeps. Oh, and let’s wish Michael a safe flight home, and a speedy return back here real soon.
Today I have my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…
I did another watercolor card, I just can’t get enough of it lately! My card starts off with a base of Pumpkin Pie Card Stock, on top of that is a piece of Crushed Curry to back the main panel. I stamped the flower from the Blooming with Kindness Stamp Set in Crushed Curry and then took my damp paint brush and pulled the color from the stamped image into the flower. We have some really great images for watercoloring with this technique and this is one of the best ones. Some Old Olive is brushed on to the stem and completes the flower. The greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Finally I stamped the butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie, watercolored it too and punched it out with the Elegant Butterfly punch and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional. A little fluff of the wings and the card is finished. A simple but pretty birthday card for someone special! I really hope that you are enjoying my little obsession with watercoloring and that you liked today’s card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I thank you for stopping by and I hope that you all have a fantastic Friday! 🙂
