Hello! It's me, again! Yes how can it be me again? I know I've probably been driving you crazy with all my blogging the last few days! I can't help it! I've been very creative lately and have a whole SLEW of cards to share with you in the next bit. And I keep creating new ones too! Today's is a new one that I made this afternoon! I'll be honest I have warm feelings towards this card. I wanted to do something new to me, a whole different color scheme. I have been enjoying seeing so many citrus cards so I thought to myself why not give it a try? So here it is, it was super nice and sunny outside today so when we went for our first bike ride/walk of spring I took it outside on the step:
I stamped the flowers with staz on watercolor paper. I than colored the flowers with several distress inks and a small wet paint brush (stamped the pad onto an acrylic block like my bloggy friend Alice did!) It was fun coloring but I think I was so unhappy with how the colors were looking I may not have done the best job I could. I need a smaller paint brush! It was a fun technique and super fast!
Usually when I don't like a card I don't really mention it. I think than I can pretend it's good. But this makes me think of some bad hippie dress. I may not be attempting citrus again! Back to aqua I tell you! :> And don't' be surprised it this post disappears!
By the way as I am writing this post I look over at Carter who often comes downstairs with me and plays with his toys. Today he discovered scissors and cutting! He is currently cutting up my ribbon! ACK! Luckily I caught him just in time and he is cutting up some ugly ribbon. I also discovered that his kid scissors is cutting ribbon better than my scissors! :> I should give him this card to cut up......
