Hello friends. It's the start of another week. I hope you had a good weekend!
I had a very special weekend. More about that later.
First, a card....
I seldom do a one layer card anymore but
The Flower Challenge this month is
My friends at Unity Stamps had a special stamp offered to their
customers and subscribers. I jumped on it and love this stamp!
I put it in my MISTI and stamped onto a card cut from
Strathmore 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper.
I inked the stamp with a yellow Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker
and then tapped a damp water brush to the stamped image.
Stamping again added back the lines of the petals.
I did the stems the same way with an Olive Green Zig.
I pulled some of the color around for a light wash around the flower,
then stamped the sentiment.
The first time I did that, I smeared the sentiment.
I hate when I do that!
I was able to salvage some of the design and you'll see that in a later post.
Our CAS Watercolour Challenge this month is Sunflowers,
so I'll add this over there too.
As for the special weekend, my friend Mary H. from Carolina Cards by Mary H.
came for a visit with her DH.
She joined in with my stamping class and we had a wonderful time visiting
except our time was too short.
I hope she and her DH will come back soon! My DH does too.
