Negative – Thanks

If you’ve been to my Pinterest page lately, you may have already seen this card.  Thought I’d post it here, too, just to keep my creative fun going a bit longer.

TY-012-01The ‘thanks’ panel was created when I was trying out some new watercolor paints.  I die cut the word from the panel, but loved the look of the negative that was left.  So I dolled it up here with some glitter tape, a butterfly sticker, and my PTI quatrefoil impression plate.

And A Single

Well, I started with a triple, then a double, and now a single.  Any guesses on what the prospects are for tomorrow….??  LOL. 😉

I recently bought a package of watercolor pencils, and I’ve been wanting to try them.  I had a little personal time while watching some college softball on TV Saturday, so I grabbed a few supplies to try a rudimentary water-colored panel.  The Retro Sketches #62 challenge looked like it would work for what I was creating, but I did flip the sketch 180.

Not too bad for a first attempt, I suppose.

The background is Smokey Shadow, though it looks pretty black here.  I’ve been on a Smokey Shadow kick lately.  I embossed that panel with the Wood Grain impression plate.  I stamped one of the Long Stem Silhouettes images onto the focal panel and then added some white embroidery floss and a banner with a Gracious Vases sentiment stamped onto it, also in the Smokey Shadow color.

Very clean and simple here today.
