Power Poppy is currently previewing their spring stamp release -- eight new swoonworthy sets and you know I love them all! For the time being, however, I'm trying to catch up on coloring some of Marcy's digis I've collected. While I'm in the mood for spring, today's card speaks more to the dark, rainy days we've been having and it makes me feel like curling up by the fire.
Using the Get Wool Soon digi, I made it for an ailing friend who dabbles in knitting and likes a purple and blue color combo. It's printed on 140 lb hot press watercolor paper and watercolored with Stampin' Up! inks. I lightened the image before printing, but it was still easy enough to see the detail. It gave the yarn a nice, soft look.
You may tee hee at what I've got going on there with my knitting project. I honestly don't know anything about knitting. Maybe my friend had a good giggle when she received this card, but you know they say laughter is the best medicine.
After painting I unleashed a splatter storm on it in an effort to disguise some inky streaks my printer left behind. Darn printer, but I love that it lets me watercolor.
I'll be back Wednesday. Keep stamping, my friends!
