Blogger's Challenge #65: Watercoloring!


Good day! Don't you just love this image from Under the Stars? I do!!! I did this one for a workshop a little earlier but since I haven't shared and that it's got watercoloring, I thought it was time to be seen!

I used the Marker Watercolor tech to complete this card. Of course, you can find this tech at Technique Junkies! Or, have a workshop or get together with me and I'll show you!

It's been a long week so I'm keeping it short. My church and community had a tragic loss this week with the death of an active member. Please keep her four children and her husband in your prayers. And, always tell the ones that you love that you love them!



Recipe:
Stamps sets: Under the Stars, Fundamental Phrases
Cardstock/Ink: Chocolate chip, Close to cocoa, naturals ivory
Other: Aquapainter, Scallop punch, stampin dimensionals, stampin sponges, various SU markers

Of course it counts when it's a cute as this card. I love that Bear (reminds me of my dear hubby) They call him a growly bear at work. - Great job with the watercoloring.

He is adorable. I really had to have this set but have not even mounted it yet. This is such a cute card, it may inspire me to get mine out in the morning.

Adorable! You are almost tempting me to add this set to my wish list!! Great job on the watercoloring.
It's always difficult to loose someone....especially when they are so young and have so much life yet to live. My thoughts and prayers to you and her family.
