I didn't post last weekend because Molly and I went to the Stamp Convention in West Springfield and this past weekend I went to a Stampin Up workshop. I am very behind in reading posts and leaving comments. This card was started on Thursday and I must confess you are seeing my second attempt at watercoloring this image. I still am not happy with the coloring, but wanting to finish a card before midnight, I decided to cut around the petals and pop them up, somewhat disguising the fact that I need practice with watercolors.
We haven't been to the Stamp Convention in a couple years for various reasons. I was a little disappointed to see that it is down to only twenty eight vendors making it very crowded on Saturday. I think next time I may only go on Sunday, a much more relaxed day. My favorite find was the Peerless Watercolors sold by Technique Junkie. I have been wanting them for a while and I used them on today's card. Best new product (to me at least) were the new StazOn pads. They are smaller and the lids click on. I used Cloudy Sky to stamp the Artful Stamper (Stamp On It) image on watercolor paper.
I die cut the pink layer and the watercolored piece the same size, then cut down the one on the inside line by hand. A line of washi tape and some brown leaves on an embossed olive layer to keep it from being too centered; a butterfly and some gold dew drops to embellish; all mounted on a white card.
No time to find a challenge to enter....you were kind enough to visit anyway.... thank you for stopping by.
