It's quite wet out here in, OH! No sun shining today! Isn't it nice when the weather helps your creative juices?? Late last night, I checked the challenge on Splitcoast, and ran up to my craft room to play! I have been wanted to paint lately! It's been years since I've painted! I am a HORRIBLE painter! Seriously, I've even been told that! Anyway, I thought, I love holding a paintbrush, so how about incorporating some "painting" onto my card? Just to see if I could do it! I took out my watercolor pencils and an image I had stamped onto watercolor paper from SU!'s set called, "Fast & Fabulous." Put some water in a cup and started painting! I LOVED it!! And I feel like now I have had more experience with blender pens and coloring, now was the perfect time to try this! Here's the card I created!
After I finished painting the image, i set it to the side and went to BED!! At that point is was 1a.m!! EEEK! Anyway, my husband and I woke up a bit late, was able to get our daughter fed and ready for school on time!! :) After she left, I ran up to try to get my card finished as fast as possible! THAT was a task! I hadn't thought of a color combo for what I had watercolored! Oh, my!! After cutting MANY pieces of cardstock and not finding ANY combo I liked, I started to look outside. All I saw was fog, rain and GREY!! And then, all of a sudden it hit me! GREY!! :) So, I grabbed some grey cardstock, started cutting, running things through my Big Kick, grabbed my pearls, found some ribbon and.... VOILA!! After it was all put together, I thought those flowers needed a little something. So I grabbed some glue and put some dazzling diamonds in the center of each flower. Here's the picture where you can SEE them!:
I really loved this sketch when I was through with my card!! I'd love to hear what you think of my card!! Thanks for taking a peak!
