Greetings friends! Who knew I'd be so long between posts? Not I. First one thing and then another kept me from my happy place, and not all of it was very much fun. Think "mail theft" and "bank account" and you might get an idea of what I've been dealing with. 'Nuff said on that!
If I stay away from stamping too long I get out of the groove. It gets more difficult. Know what I mean? I thought I'd ease back in with something simple and relaxing. I bought this Altenew Wishing You set for the sentiments -- lots to work with there. However, it also comes with this pretty daffodil and a hummingbird. I couldn't fit the hummingbird on my A2 card, but here's the daffodil and one of the many sentiment combos.
After embossing the daffodil in white I watercolored with Gansai Tambi paints on Strathmore Vellum Surface mixed media paper. Watercoloring on this paper is a different experience, but I like it for a change. I also did some light smooshing and splattering, but because I wanted a soft and airy look I kept that to a minimum.
I smooshed aqua paint on the die cut corner, too. Lastly, the sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.
I'll be back on Wednesday with something I made before all the bad stuff happened. Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon. Have a happy day!
