"The trouble with a kitten is that.....
it becomes a cat!"
I've been busy the last several days with family things, so I haven't been making any cards! Today, I was finally able to sit at my craft table to put a card together for the MFP Color Challenge - using purple, blue, and yellow.
It's kind of weird because this challenge had technical difficulties last week, so they extended it until July 3rd. However, this week when they posted the new challenge, they also posted a winner for this challenge ....before its submission deadline ....(shrug...) Oh, well, even if my card isn't eligible to be in the drawing, I still wanted to play with this awesome color combo!!!
I have been itching to watercolor a blue rose ever since I snagged this rose stamp at a thrift store. This challenge gave me the ideal chance!! I had to free-hand (EEEK!) my leaves as this stamp didn't have any. I used a stamp from my Denami Leaves and Stems set as a guide. Whew! I didn't want to use the actual stamp and mask it off because the lines were a lot heavier than the rose lines. So free-hand it was. :&
I also followed the fun sketch from Feeling Sketchy. I put an embossed vellum butterfly instead of a flower embellishment, as you see....and added a bit of bling. Hope you like how it turned out!
I have another NEW FOLLOWER!!!!!!! And you know what that means........
Welcome to Ina Ftacek!! I was delighted to meet a new bloggy friend today when Ina joined up and introduced herself. She has recently received eye implants so she can SEE again to do her crafts and artwork. Isn't that totally awesome??!!!??? She has two blogs and I joined up with them both: Ina's Inklings and Artful Adventures. Wouldn't you all like to join up there, too, to give her a boost? I think it would mean a lot to her!! So, anyway, here is a ginormous new-follower smile just for you, Ina. Thanks for becoming my newest follower!!!
