Thank you...

If you follow my blog, you know I have a fear of watercolor.  Well...anything messy really.  I realized that part of the problem isn't really just fear....its impatience.  Waiting on stuff to dry?  Not a fan.  SO, I pulled out my Zig pens and got messy and waited for stuff to dry.  And it was fun.  This is what happened....

I used MFT's Party Patterns set to create these circles.  I stamped them on watercolor paper and then added color to each.  Then let it sit for....actually I did it last Wednesday and then put the card together this morning.  hehe!  I thought if I could paint something up and forget about it then it wouldn't be so bad.  So I went to the pool, read part of To Kill a Mockingbird, went to KC Royals game, did some laundry.... I got to my desk this morning and it was all ready for me to create!

I used a circle punch to punch out the images and then stacked them up to create a fun bubble look.  I added in the sentiment die and then some tiny black liquid enamel dots for an extra fun little detail.

I used this CAS(E) this sketch for inspiration and was so happy to play along with a challenge for the first time in FOREVER.



So I learned that I can paint it up and walk away and it will all be ok!  I may have to try more of this messy watercolor stuff again soon.  :)  Hope you are all doing well.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping in!

  2. What a lovely card!! I know what you mean by fearing getting "messy." I have all sorts of watercolor and never use it for this reason. I hate taking the time for things to dry and then having to clea it all up.

    I love the fun circles that you created. The colors you used are lovely.
