Hi everyone! It’s Wednesday and that means the Color Throwdown team has thrown together another color combo for us….I haven’t played in a couple weeks, and Cathy’s pretty selection had me itching to jump in:
It seems that most of my cards have been pretty simple lately, as I have been doing some stuff around the house (as well as babysitting!) so I hope you don’t mind simplicity! The Fabulous Florets set was already sitting on my desk, and I had seen this lovely card on Lisa’s blog and thought it would be fun to do some watercoloring again, this time without the embossing:
This card is 4 1/8” square; the stamped panel is a piece of 3 3/4” square water color paper., which really makes watercoloring a breeze! I used my aquapainter and some reinkers, masking the floral images for the final step of stamping the greenery. I also added some spritzes with my spritzing tool (still getting the hang of THAT!) and I (gasp!) cut apart the Happy Birthday sentiment from Curly Cute so that I could easily position it the way I wanted.
Oooh, this was fun and easy and QUICK! And just a reminder---the Stampin’Up! Retired List comes out today---if you need a copy or want to place an order, just let me know!
I was looking through some older photos of the baby and realized I hadn’t posted this cutie:
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to play along with the CTD girls, too---all the info is on their blog! :D
