Peace


It's Tuesday and NO, you are not seeing blurry!  Since my supply of sympathy cards has been depleted, I took the time to create a card and play along with the CAS challenge at Splitcoast and the challenge at Moxie Fab; The wonders of watercolouring.  My card is all about the sunrise which we all really need right now here in Ontario after such a mixed bag of weather this Spring. 

I started by masking the center area then stamped the flowers and then without re-inking stamped them again moving them slightly to the right to give a shadow effect.  Next, using Distress inks, I watercoloured the flowers and then sponged on the yellow, added the sentiment and the doodled border.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Stampin Up, Studio G/ Memento black/ Distress inks/ waterbrush/ pop dots
