WATERCOLOR CARD


Well, I'm doing something today that I don't normally do: I've created a [watercolor] card for a challenge other than for Simply Create Too Challenges. [I'm about as busy as I want to be over there therefore I don't normally enter other challenges]. Anyway, while looking on today's Paper Playful, I saw a challenge entry for 'WaterColor 101' Salt challenge and, of course, I had to check them out since watercolors are my most, very, favorite medium. Now, I've tried the salt technique before [without very satisfying results], but Victoria has great instructions on her blog HERE. And, it worked for me this time! Using my watercolored paper, I made a card for my best-est buddy [for 'just because'].

My Card Recipe: I used green [at bottom] and blue [at top]--both dried lighter than I expected--I sprinkled Kosher salt on the blue and regular salt on the green [mostly to see the difference]. I then cut the watercolor paper to fit my card, then ran it thru my embossing machine using a Darcey butterfly folder. After attaching my watercolor paper to my card base, I punched out butterflies from both the blue and green extra. I pop-dotted the three butterflies onto the embossed butterflies using alternating colors. Last I attached 3 sequences and my CAS card is completed to my satisfaction. Hope you try this too--it's FUN, FUN, FUN!!! I want to enter my card in the 101: Water-Color: 102 challenge.

God's rich blessings to you & yours,

DDD #242 - "HANK - HAT BOY"



Our youngest Grand loves hats. While we were playing computer games he wanted me to draw him a hat with a 'boy under it'. [I think he really just wanted me to get out of his way!] Digi #242 - "Hank - Hat Boy" was what I came up with--it made Jordan smile! So----mission accomplished!

This is the card I created. I made one with "Happy Birthday" as the sentiment. I made another card with "Feel Better" because our nephew Parker just had his appendix removed and wanted to cheer him up. Please say prayers for Parker--he's such a sweet, wonderful boy!



Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!

Blessings to you & yours,
