I know it will be quite a while still before we see any sort of plant life in the Edmonton area - but it's nice to anticipate.
I've used the Mojo Monday Sketch for this card along with the Technique Challenge of Splitcoast - which was Very Vintage; and the colours from Cards and Things - Elegant Eggplant, Mellow Moss and Bordering Blue.
You can't see it very well in the picture, but the flowers are
done on a piece of water colour paper and I used both the blender pen and aqua painter to create the piece. I am NOT a painter by any means - but I'm pleased with how this turned out.
I also learned that it is easier to distress paper when crumpling it up if you wet it with water first - doesn't hurt the hands as much either.
My second card uses an image from Squigglefly for their challenge this week which was to create a scene on your card. I used the sketch from "Lord Have Mercy" and the colours are from this weeks Colour Challenge on Splitcoast. I added a few extra colours for the colouring - but the rest hold true.
We're heading into hump day - the report cards are done and the mornings are brighter. All is
well - I love not having to walk around in the
dark first thing in the morning! I hope your day is also full of light!
Thanks for stopping by,
