Challenge #3

beautifulbirthdayOk.  I have to pat myself on the back for this one.  Ever make a card and think, “Oh my word! That’s stunning??”  I have times where that happens.  Other times I think, “Eh, not bad.  It needs something.”  And still, other times I think, “yikes!”  Others might like it but there is something really missing!

This card, though.  Perfect!  Yeah, I said it, “perfect!”  Could I have added more embellishments?  Of course, but… I wanted this card to be simple and stunning.  Yes, this hits the mark! *pat, pat, pat on the back*  So, if you haven’t guessed, this challenge was about watercoloring.  I knew what I was going to do before I did.  I was thinking about the new Lift Me Up stamp set with the hot air balloon….. but….. I am a butterfly girl!  I wasn’t always but thanks to a trip that I took, thanks to Stampin’ Up!, I became one.  I haven’t stopped since.  I may still do a hot air balloon….

I started with the watercolor pencils and the aqua painters.  It just wasn’t bold enough for me.  So, I moved to ink.  I did it right on top of the watercolor pencils. WOW’ser!
