|What I think I do in my garden......|
|What I really do.....|
I have been really struggling to get my energy and mojo back after being sick. The weather has cooled off for a little while, thankfully, so I have been trying to do some much needed work in my garden. (Keyword: trying...) Also, I am in a time crunch to finish a baby quilt by the end of the month, when I'll be seeing my new little grand-nephew, so cardmaking got pushed to back burner. I am so glad for the weekly Unity-Friends with Flair linky party that gets me on here at least once per week, even when I am dragging!
Today, I have a bright-as-sunshine card to share, so you might need to grab your shades to protect your eyes!! I messed around with the photo-editing to try to get it as vivid as it really is, but the picture is still lacking! I used my Unity - She is without Fear itty bitty stamp for this card with Versafine Ink in Vintage Sepia.
I was playing around with my water-based markers a few weeks back.....rehydrating ones that were dry, but not out of ink, by letting them sit with their tips in a baby food jar with a half-inch or so of water. When I was done, I couldn't just throw out the deeply pigmented water! So I applied it to some watercolor paper and mixed media paper for backgrounds. This is one of them. I splattered on some Perfect Pearls mist spray for some interest. (It's *interesting* that they photographed white, instead of pearly! Sigh....) Then I topped it with a shimmery yellow bow. The card base is a bright glittery yellow, but you can't see the sparkliness in the photo. (Sigh, again....)
I like the bright warm glow this card has. Hope you like it, too!!!
Thank you for visiting and for your very lovely comments.
Have a wonderful sunshiny day!!
