So we had brilliant sunshine all day yesterday, and to make up for it today it's going to rain All. Day. Long. Yay. I want to move to Arizona. At least the sun shines there.
Anyway, I have two cards for you today.
Thought I'd try some kind of free-form watercolor today. I was inspired by this week's Global Design Project CASE the Designer challenge:
I don't have the stamps that Paula used, so I picked a different floral stamp and kept the color combo and simple layout. And I picked Rose Wonder because of this week's What Will You Stamp? challenge:
I thought the sentiment I chose would work well for a sympathy card, and it's always good to have a couple of those on hand so I made another one.
This time I used the color challenge from Cupcake Inspirations:
I used Blushing Bride and Cherry Cobbler, and the rose is embossed in gold. Then I added Tip Top Taupe for the leaves, but since I watercolored both of these at the same time there's a wee bit of cross-contamination--look closely and you'll see a smidge of blue on the pink card and vice versa.
I got the watercolor paper a little too wet on the pink card and the ink overflowed especially around the leaves, but the way that it did it with the pink and brown together I thought was kind of cool so I just went with it. And now I have two sympathy cards for my stash, which I hope I won't need anytime soon.
That's it for me today, kids. Cheers!
