Gold Bamboo Rose Watercolor

Well, it was definitely hot here yesterday! I think the with the heat index it reached 105! I was quite happy! LOL! Like I always tell you, there is a really nice breeze down by the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store and I was inside in the AC most of the day. I did get to play with some crafty goodness and my Taylor stopped by with Kiera for a little while. She says that she comes to see me, I think she comes because I’m close to Blaze Pizza! I had a lovely ride home, Taylor tried to beat me but that didn’t happen! When I got home Daniel and Tristan were at my Parent’s. Jason and Erika went out to celebrate her birthday. Daniel came over to my house to let Winston out and gave him his biscuit and then he asked if we could hang out in the backyard. He asked my why it gets dark and I explained to him the scientific reason, he’s a smartย little boy! I used a ball and a flashlight to demonstrate! We also got to watch a thunderstorm way off in the distance and it was lighting up the clouds. He said that he is afraid of thunderstorms but likes fireworks. I told him that lightning is nature’s fireworks. He was very happy to watch it after that! I have a video of it posted on my Instagram and Facebook. He is so much fun!

I had recently acquired some Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors and some Silver Brushes. After I set up the pans and created a swatch I used them to color in the new Altenew Bamboo Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set! The card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I created the background with the watercolors and some Arches 140lb Paper. The images from the stamp set are heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto more Arches and colored in with the watercolors also. I let everything air dry and then cut the flowers and butterflies out with my Scissors. The greeting is from the Altenew Painted Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also heat embossed in Gold. After I ran the background through my Platinum Machine to iron it out I adhered it to the card with Extreme Adhesive. The flowers are adhered with 3D Foam Squares. It wouldn’t be a finished card without a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins! I absolutely love the Mission Gold Watercolors! The pigments are so vibrant and they are very easy to work with! I hope that you like my card for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a simple Sunday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Good Morning Justin:

    I envy those of you that enjoy and use the watercolor paints. The background of this particular card is just gorgeous. I, unfortunately, have not had good luck with watercoloring so I tend to stay away from it and enjoy seeing what all you talented people do with it. LOL And YOU Justin are so talented and do a fantastic job with it.

    I bet last night was a special, special night with Daniel. Probably one he will never forget. I love the way you explained the lightning to him. I would love to see that video. He is lucky to have an Uncle that enjoys being with him. I hope that bond never breaks. Wishing you a Summery Sunday…..Luv and hugs, XXOO ๐Ÿ™‚

      I love Watercolors! The new ones that I got are fantastic! I think that the more you play around with something the better you get! Just have to practice! Thank you so much! I appreciate that!!
      I love getting to spend time with Daniel! He is so inquisitive and remembers everything that you tell him! That’s why I take the time to show him when I can! As soon as I explained the lightning that way he was very interested in seeing it! He’s so damn cute! I love that little boy and am happy whenever I get to spend some time with him! You have a summery Sunday too! Enjoy the sun! Love and hugs back at ya! XOXO ๐Ÿ™‚
