Happy Monday, peeps! Just a quick card today; I was up until 12:30 am playing with my new goodies from the catalog and I couldn’t wait to ink up the set, Hey, Girl, which I got with Cassidy in mind! So here’s my (almost) one-layer card:
This was sort of a practice run; I wanted to see how our new heavyweight cardstock held up with watercoloring, and I was very pleased. It didn’t pill like SU’s regular cardstock and it didn’t bleed through to the inside! It doesn’t allow the colors to blend quite as well as watercolor paper, but it does a great job otherwise! I stamped the image with Memento, and I was also worried that the water would make the ink bleed, but it did pretty well. My only other issue is that I need to figure out a better flesh color; Blushing Bride is just a wee bit too pink for me, maybe I’ll add in some brown tint next time! I did paper piece the balloon from some Schoolhouse DSP, and I added some glitter to her skirt just for fun! And the inside sentiment says “You!”
Cassidy came this morning decked out in jammies and Wellies, and proceeded to show me her new toys she got for her doll house: a family of dogs complete with a feeding station, carrier, and a TV for them to watch:
Enjoy your day!
