Hello peeps! I hope that you all had a nice Friday! I got to do my monthly errand of delivering the posters to our other locations at work yesterday! Always a good day for me! After work I headed over to Scrap-A-Latte and met up with Andrew. He spent the day inputting names and email addresses into a spreadsheet and Constant Contact so that’s all done! I tinkered around with the monitor for the computer and got it to work as a touch screen, like it’s supposed to be! When I got home I went into the Stampin’ Galley and got lost in watercoloring. Realized that it was 12:00 and thought, hmm… I’d better get to bed! It’s nice to get so involved in something that you loose track of time every once in a while, wouldn’t you agree?!
One of the things that I watercolored last night even made it to a card! It’s the funky little bird! For the base of today’s card I used a piece of Whisper White Card Stock. A piece of Very Vanilla is stamped with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Crumb Cake and covers the entire card front. The funky little bird is from the A Happy Thing Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Watercolor Paper. I used Elegant Eggplant and Bermuda Bay for the main colors, the branch is Soft Suede and his beak is Crushed Curry. I mixed in a little water with the colors from my squished Ink Pad lids and just filled him in. I decided that the background looked a little dull against all of his boldness so I used some Soft Sky to fill it in. He is mounted to a piece of Basic Black and adhered to the card with SNAIL. My greeting is actually three pieces of Basic Black that are cut out with the Hello You Thinlits and glued together with Multi-Purpose Glue. I really do love that funky little bird and he looks nice and spring like in his bold colors! The stacked greeting is also neat, I love the dimension that it has! I hope that you enjoyed my simple watercolor card for today! Thanks for checking in with me! I wish you all a super Saturday! 🙂
