Today’s SCS challenge WT326 is to use piercing, and the Pals Paper Arts challenge 97 is to show your style (and they have blog candy too!)! My style depends a lot on my mood! Today was a watercoloring mood! I have an acquaintance in my Senior Circle Knit Wits group who had some surgery. I just began attending this group; I DO NOT knit, but I love doing counted cross stitch, so I bring my project and the others bring their knitting and we sit in the beautiful lounge area of our local grocery store! For an hour, I can just sit and sew and chatter away—it is so nice! Anyway, this Lockhart knitting basket stamp was perfect for her card:
I stamped the image on watercolor paper and played to my heart’s content with my reinkers and aquapainter! I stamped the gingham background in Daffodil Delight and cut it out with a Nestie; I added a sentiment using Laura’s little Sentiment Flag die (that thing is SO handy!) and shabbied up some seam binding to give it an additional country feel.
I like Copics, but I really love watercoloring! Thanks for looking today! Another scorcher here—stay cool!
