Hey y'all. Yesterday was a looooooooooooooong day because Ryan woke up at 3:00 throwing up, and then didn't want to go back to sleep until about 9 a.m. and then was only down for about an hour. He seems like he's feeling better now, so here's hoping there are no further relapses into last weekend's stomach bug. I went and bought a new bottle of laundry detergent yesterday because we're going through it so fast :p
Ryan DID take a nap yesterday afternoon, so I got to make this:
And yes, watercoloring that panel took FOR.EV.ER!!! I thought to myself why didn't I decide to make a 3x3 card?? But I liked how it turned out. I stamped the big flower from Beautiful Day (I bought that set on a whim and I freakin' LOVE IT) in Sahara Sand ink (stamped off once) and then just went to town watercoloring around it. Does this count as no-line watercolor if I watercolored the lines back on? The ribbon is retired, but it's what I have on hand and no one is policing that on my blog anyway so I can do whatever I want. :p
I was inspired by the challenge graphic from Retro Rubber:
I love that green bottle; kinda wish my card idea had ended up with a much more saturated green but my stamping muse said watercolor so I watercolored. Obviously I used the main colors from the picture on my card. Beautiful Day is just one year old, but Touches of Texture I've had for at least two and a half years...and the word die is brand spankin' new because like I said before, Imma be using that set of dies a lot. They're fun. But do be careful to grab the dots for your "I"s...I had to dig through the trash to find the one for my bridal shower card earlier this week. Oops.
I also used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:
Very simple sketch, I like it a lot. Lots of scope for imagination, as Anne Shirley would say.
Cheers, y'all! Stay healthy.
