On a Roll ...
Hi everyone. As my title says ... I'm on a roll! :) After struggling for many weeks after my surgery, my mojo is finally back and I'm having fun creating. Most of the cards you have seen over the past while were done before surgery, a few after. The ones done after took many tries to get something I was happy enough to share with you. :)
Today I just had fun playing. This is a very CAS one layer card with the colours of Autumn. I used a tree stamp that actually has a swing hanging from the larger branch (which I masked off). I did the no-line watercolouring technique ... happy how it turned out. :)
I stamped the image in crumb cake ink (light brown) and then watercoloured over top with many different colour of distress inks I made this specifically for a challenge being hosted by my friend Karen (Snippets). This is for the One Layer Simplicity challenge ... Red, Orange and Yellow.
I'm also adding this to the gallery at CAS Watercolour October Challenge - Autumn.
And I'm adding this to Paper Player #317 - CAS with Leaf. Haven't played there for a LONG time, so happy to renew myself with the challenge. Went there after seeing Hannelie's DT card. Thanks Hannelie!
