Hi there, friends!
Just thought I'd pop in quick and share with you a card I made for the challenge over at My Favorite Things. We are to follow the above sketch. I thought I'd make a Father's Day card for my husband. I got out my water color paints and went to work. And, here is my card...
I started with a white card base and paired it with black. I used Gansai Tambi water colors on Tim Holtz water color paper. The dies and stamps are from MFT. The twine is from Paper Sweeties.
I thank you all for your sweet comments regarding my allergies. I pulled a few weeds this morning. I need to get out there and do more. My doctor said that if I get a terrible allergic reaction again that he'll call in a prescription for prednisone. So, I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping the pollen count goes way down. Ok, well that's all for now. I hope all is well in your world! Thanks so much for dropping by today! Take care!

Super use of that wonderful sketch, Maria! Love the wc bg! Good thing you're not out here as we just heard OR has the highest pollen counts in the country right now!ReplyDelete
Maria, this is gorgeous! What a unique and fabulous take on the sketch. :o) The watercolor background is amazing and I love all of the stitched elements. The color palette is equally wonderful! I love the pop of black from the die cuts and twine. The sentiment is precious, too... what a beautiful way to show him you care. :o) Wonderfully done, my dear friend! I pray your allergies improve, the pollen behaves, and that you don't need that prescription. :o)ReplyDelete
Hugs and blessings,
