I haven't had much crafting time lately but here's a card I made last month
for DD's birthday.
I used a NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) stamp for the garden.
It was stamped with Memento ink on watercolor paper.
I used an Aqua Painter and my Koi watercolors for coloring.
This little set of watercolors is perfect for travel.
I took it with me on vacation along with some stamped images.
I find watercoloring very soothing.
Looking at this photo I see that I should have done something different
on the inside of that large flower! Maybe some dots with the white gel pen?
No matter, DD loved it!
I stamped the butterfly on a piece of cardstock that had been sponged with yellow.
It seemed to look much better than any of the marker colored butterflies I had on hand.
is looking for butterflies, so I'm playing over there.
I was so excited to see that this card was the winner of their last challenge.
I won a $20.00 gift credit at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.
I've already cashed that in and can't wait for my goodies to arrive.
They really ship fast!
is asking for Summertime Butterflies
so I'll flit over there.
I used 2 techniques besides stamping on the card
(Watercolor and Sponging [butterfly])
so I'll go over to
the Mixed Media challenge
which has a Summertime theme.
is also looking for Summer projects.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
