Hello my friends!
It's another gorgeous weekend here in East Texas. I am headed out on an early morning hike with my friends again, before we go to church. I love being able to get out and do stuff, before the heat sets in this spring and summer. Fortunately, I got some time to make some stuff during the week, after work. It was a crazy, busy week for me, so I needed that crafty time to unwind.
There is a new challenge posted over on the Pile It On blog today. This weeks challenge is to use the color green, with two other colors. Here is the card I made.
I actually watercolored with distress inks for this card. I wasn't sure if I was going to like the outcome, but in the end, it's really pretty. I chose to use Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn. I blended them onto my panel, and then spritzed with it with lots of water so that the colors would blend more, and pool up a bit. Once it was dry, I cut it down with the largest Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangles die. I popped it up with some fun foam, and added some Tumbled Glass splatters, before adding it to my card base. This is such a cool card, and it was so easy to put together. I'm glad I finally dove into trying the watercoloring thing. Now I'm going to try my other watercolors I have on hand, that have never been used. Wish me luck! :-)
I'm going to submit my card for the following challenges:
Cardz 4 Guyz #109: Create your own background
Star Stampz Challenge: Embossing
Crafty Creations #310: Sentiment As Focal Point
AAA Cards #59: Embossing
Less Is More: Color Week - Citrus

So that's all for me. I do hope you'll head over to see what my friends have also created for you today. They're always so beautiful. Hopefully, you'll get the chance to join us for this challenge. You have two weeks to play along. We enjoy visiting your blogs to see your creations and leave bits of love. I hope ya'll have a great day, and an even better week!
