It is definitely a happy Sunday for me since the 49ers won last night. Yay!!! During the second game I made this card. I have really been struggling with good designs. Many of the cards I see have many layers and embellishments which makes them look great, but since I'm trying to make cards to give to cancer patients to give to their caregivers and doctors I am trying to go easy on the bulk so if they mail them they don't have to pay more. My cards seem plain to me but for my purpose I guess they are good. When I saw this stamp my first thought was "watercolors". I've been using Copics a lot lately but felt that this image would look good watercolored. The image is Wryn-New Nest by Tiddly Inks. I used my watercolor pencils with her and just matted her on plain green cardstock on a kraft card. I really like the way she came out. However, as is typical with me, I felt I put her on the card crooked and of course ripped the paper trying to get her off ( I should really use re-positionable tape lol). Since I liked the card I thought I'd just use her as a sample. I'll make more of her now that I have the basic design down. I am not all that happy with her hair so it gives me a chance to do it over. I know the colors to use for red with copics, but pencils is another story. My niece is a redhead and a tomboy so Wryn reminds me of her. Have a great rest of the weekend!
