In Memory

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

My dear niece lost her battle with Melanoma this week.
She fought the disease bravely and tried every trial available to her.

She leaves behind two children and a devoted partner.
If you pray, please pray for them and her parents.

I wiped the inside of embossing folder with a baby wipe and embossed a piece
of watercolor paper.   For the color,  I used watercolors and touched
up with watercolor pencils.

The outside is edged with a Black Sharpie by tracing around the design piece on
a piece of scrap paper.

This is a CASE of card by Erum Tasneem.
Thank you for your inspiration Erum.

Bonnie, I am so sorry. Such sad news. You and your whole family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Gorgeous card!! I have been playing with Zig Clean Color watercolor brushes and am really enjoy using them. I want to try to use the technique you used to make this card next. You have such a good eye for color and talent for color mixing.

I’m so sorry about your niece, Bonnie. How terribly sad.

This card is outstanding! Your coloring is amazing and love the blend of the pink and yellow. I can’t get over that you managed to line it up again in the embossing folder. What a beautiful card! This looks so hard to do and thank you for the link.
