Hi everyone. Had fun playing in my studio yesterday. This card started with a background I made a while ago (click HERE to see a card made earlier and instructions on how I made the background).
This time, my experiment was to see if my new Zig watercolour pens would colour over the frost sprayed background. They did! :) I used my Misti for stamping on this card. I used the "bumpy" side of my watercolour paper for this background, so really needed some help to get clean stampings of my flower stem and sentiment. The Misti came to my rescue ... I was able to stamp each of them multiple times until I achieved the look I wanted. :) Then I quickly coloured in the flowers and leaves with my Zig pens.
I had so much fun just playing. :)
Also, I wanted to share that hubby and I had two very special visitors come by a couple of days ago. Darnell (djkardkreations) and her Mister dropped by on their way back home after vacationing on Vancouver Island. Dolly (that's what I call her), is a lovely, kind, and generous person --- exactly what I expected after getting to know her on-line. And her Mister is a sweetheart.
It was so exciting to meet her after being "friends" on-line for a long time. I have always admired Darnell's creativity ... and I always enjoy her witty posts. You make me laugh, Dolly ... and my days are always brighter when I stop by your blog.
We had a great visit, talked about all kinds of things ... family, work, crafting. The time flew by all too soon.
Dolly made sure that we took a picture of the two of us before leaving. I am not good in photographs, but Dolly looks great! :) I didn't think until after they were gone that I should have taken a picture of Dolly and Mister. Hopefully we can do that next time. :)
