A Watercolor Note

Hi all!

Hi everyone - happy Monday!  Yea right!  We had a great weekend off in our camper with Pez.  We went to Bethpage Resort which is fabulous - if you are anywhere near VA I recommend it.  And you don't HAVE to have an RV, you can rent a cabin there.  I think it would make the perfect group camping spot if I could get some other folks together to do it.

I have another card done for my mom today - this one is inspired by the following challenges:

I love incorporating a little mixed media into my card making and that is what I did here.  I stamped and embossed my image with white and then put a light wash of watercolors on using my shimmery Twinkling H2Os.  It helps to mist the paper before adding the Twinks.  Once dry I sponged on some Silks Acrylic Glaze through sequin waste to get the tiny dots.  you can get Twinks AND Silks at ColourArte!

When the light hits the card there is gorgeous shimmer and glow across the card front - I just love that!  I added a die cut done using the Cricut Damask Decor cartridge and then stamped my sentiment.

And now we're off to the mall to buy teeny baby shoes!  Our first grandbaby is on the way and we just found out it's a boy!  So Pez and I are off to get some teeny shoes to stage a pic for the scrapbook page of ultrasound pics - you'll have to wait and see what we have planned!  Maybe I will get back to scrapping after I finish all of my mom's cards!
