And Then This Happened…

You know powdering up just one piece of watercolor paper wasn’t going to work…oh no!  Here’s another experiment with a different color combo.  Can you see how the color explodes in the background?


What an explosion of happy colors…

Like yesterday’s card the watercolor paper was spritzed with water to get it wet after blowing dry pigment from the color burst bottles.  A little bit goes a long way.  You can always add more pigment after the explosion happens if you want to add an addition bit of color somewhere.

Once this was dry (you know I heated it with the heat gun) the image was stamped in Tuxedo Black as was the sentiment.  I confess to using the MISTI to get my sentiment positioned straight and really inked well.  Some water was sprayed on a small amount of the green pigment on my palette to give the leaves their green.  Added a little yellow the same way to the leaves and some of the petals.  A white gel pen was used for highlights.

Tomorrow I have one more card to show you with everything in reverse.  Interesting…hope you can stop by.

Lots of times you hear about “the littles” which are the youngest g’kids.  Rarely do I get to see “the BIGS” which are the oldest g’kids.  They are young adults with busy, fun-filled lives.  They live 125 miles away.  Last week was highlighted by an overnight visit from Kendall.

We drank coffee and talked, went shopping and to lunch and then to Starbucks for even more coffee.  Here she is taking a selfie (because most of you know I can’t take a selfie)…


Just wanted you meet this little bug…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Get inky and Be HaPpY!
