Mornin', y'all! How's it going today? Kiddo is already down for his nap so when I finish this blog post I'll be heading down to the ol' craft cave to do some stamping! But here's the card I made yesterday during naptime:
I seem to always gravitate toward blues and greens when I use this stamp set. The current challenge at Retro Rubber is anything goes:
And then I happened to see the theme challenge at SUO Challenges, "Out in the Garden", so I put those two together and came up with probably the two oldest stamp sets in the SU! catalog. I've had Lovely as a Tree since at least 2006, and Teeny Tiny Wishes since 2009, so they're both really retro ;) And I continue my watercolor wash obsession; the watercolor paper has taken up semi-permanent residence on my stamping table.
Anyway, I also used the sketch from As You See It:
This card came together really fast. Maybe a little too fast...I didn't use my heat tool to dry the watercolor panel because I thought it had dried enough while I was working on the other card elements, so after I adhered it to the card front it warped a wee bit. Word to the wise: use your extra-strong adhesive for watercolor paper ;) I stamped the oak leaf cluster on the banner, but I stamped it off once so that it wouldn't compete with the tree for attention. So it's just got a little bit of subtle pattern on there.
Okay, off I go now. Cheers, y'all!
