Hi there, I can't believe I am posting 3 days in a row. This is for Beate's Weekend Sketch. I needed to make a Mother's Day card for imakeartcards.com. It is for a challenge they are having that is due today, nothing like waiting until the last minute. I stamped the very wonderful image, (April release from My Favorite Things.) onto watercolor paper with brown StazOn. I colored it with my watercolor pencil and a blender pen. I added Liquid Applique to the flowers on the frame corners so they would pop a little. I just love these little heart paperclips, but rarely find a suitable use for them, if you try to put them with paper you can't see the heart, aarrrrgghhh! Well, I think it's perfect with this soft pink ribbon. The dp is from BasicGrey (green print) and Me & My Big Ideas (pink print). I cut out the blocks and then stitched them to piece of vanilla cs. and put that onto celery. The sentiment on the frame reads "Thank you for... being a gift in my life loving without condition giving all of yourself"
Someone asked the other day how I used my watercolor pencils with a blender pen. Is this something you would like to see a tutorial on? It is really my favorite way to color, mostly because I don't own $200 worth of Copic Markers.:) Let me know.
Thanks so much for stamping by!
