Notice anything different? Yep, I have a new look on the blog! Isn't it beautiful?!! My sweet and generous friend, Loll of Stamping with Loll gave me a complete over haul and make my blog beautiful. She even made me a beautiful watermark as well! Thanks so much for all your hard work Loll! I love my new look, how about you all? I'm so in awe at Loll's talents and generosity. I always say how blessed I am, and I mean it. I am a very blessed person, even with the loss of my husband, I know I'm still blessed in so many ways and this is just one of them.
I do have a card by the way. But just had to show off my blog first. lol I wanted to try out this technique for a while now, although I don't think I did it quite right. I'm still satisfied pretty much with the outcome. But I do need to find out how to do it correctly. I kinda' just did it on my own without a tutorial. Yeah, I know, I need to watch a tutorial. lol Also, there is a boo boo with making this card. I had planned on watercoloring with my Zigs, but got confused on what ink to stamp in that wouldn't smear. Yea, you guess it, I used the wrong ink! I used Tuxedo Black by Momento, the ink for alcohol markers. I have since labeled my black inks so I know which ones to use for what! So as I started adding some water with my water brush, my ink started to smear and I realized my mistake. Ok, so I thought lets see if I can just color in with the Zigs. So I was careful not to touch the black outline to much and colored my flower. I think I managed to save it as you have to look really close to see the smudges. Or as least I'm hoping that a lessor critical person will not notice! I am in need of thank you cards so I made this one into a thank you, but I really got to make some masculine ones for my son's who come and help me out. Anyway here is the card, as always the recipe is at the end of the post.
As always, thanks for stopping by and visiting a spell with me. I so love when you do as your comments bring me sunshine and smiles! Crafty hugs,
Edited to add that one of my commentators, Karen, suggested that I linked up with Happy Little Stampers so I did.
