Welcome back to our Wednesday blog hop. Continuing with our changing themes, this week we are to use a technique, our favorite technique. You should have arrived here from Liz's blogsite and then continue to Robbie's blogsite when you leave here.
I think my favorite technique is watercoloring. Add a little sponging, and I am happy, because I think they go together. Remember the Stampin'Up! watercolor crayons from a few years ago? I loved, loved those crayons. I used to take them on trips, color in front of the TV, take them babysitting, they were my most carried craft supply. Although I don't do quite as much watercoloring now, I still love it.
My card today uses a little watercoloring with our new watercolor pencils and also some sponging in the sky and on the ground. I wanted the card to be a little whimsical, so I kept the colors very soft. I love the Beautiful You stamps from our Occasions Catalog. When I first looked at that set my thought was pretty. Later I looked closer and not only pretty but appropriate. I can use just about any of the images and make it appropriate for birthday, friendship, sick, even the lady with the umbrella could be used for sympathy with a nice sentiment. Or, the sentiment "Wishing You Brighter Days To Come" might be used to send to a friend telling him/her you are hoping things will get better. I love the set that I originally thought might be one I could do without.
Once I had the set on my craft table I decided to try a couple other cards. Those were brighter. I've seen some really nice cards made with this set. The weeds come from Wetlands, another favorite.
Now you should continue to Robbie's site. I have a stack of cards starting to develop. For a while I had a mojo blockage, but lately I've had more ideas than time. However, blogging is not the easiest thing for me to do. I make something and then procrastinate putting it on my blog. I will try harder. Perhaps I will get a few of the stack on this blog next week? We'll see.
Have a wonderful week,
