I started with a piece of TH watercolor paper and quite liberally wet the cardstock before swiping Fired Brick, Mustard Seed & Wilted Violet Distress Inks across it. Because of all the water, the colors are quite muted, but I love the soft look.
I used a large Gina K stamp (Just A Little) and stamped with black ink over my water coloring, and then used a stitched rectangle die (also Gina K - Master Layouts 2) to die cut just a portion of my image. I layered it with a black mat and then popped it up with foam tape before adhering it to a white card base. I also added a leaf die cut from PTI (Songbird) in white to my white card base to give a bit of design to all the white surrounding the water-colored image, and the sentiment is from the Just A Little stamp set. As I mentioned before, it's a very simple card, but it almost reminds me of stained glass and I'm really happy with the way this card came out!
I've been beating myself up this month for my lack of mojo, but after finishing this card, I realized I don't have a lack of mojo at all...it's a lack of energy! I'd rather just sit and read or knit! It is Winter though, and I've got the hibernating act down to a t! Facebook told me yesterday that it's only 60 more days till Spring though, so there's light at the end of the tunnel and I'm ready!! If you're in the same place I am, hang in there...we'll get through this!! :0)
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
