Watercoloured Waterlily!


I had a little fun playin' with my aquapainter yesterday. Usually I don't like to use techniques that take a lot of time. I wanna get creatin', but I want it to be quick.....do ya hear what I'm sayin'?? I also hate to get out all the tools and products it takes for one little technique.....am I awful?? Or just lazy....don't answer that Mom!! *snort*

Anyhoo, I didn't have to work until late yesterday, so I decided to fool around with my aquapainter and do a little watercolouring. I picked up a couple of these cute little cube stamps on the weekend....ya know the ones with four different stamps, one on each of four sides?? Well these ones are by Sunshine Designs and they are called Nuggetz! And the images are simply darling!!! I just wish I could watercolour like she does!!

So I stamped the waterlily image on watercolour paper and tried out a couple of my new Tombow markers. I used black Stazon ink and then coloured in a bit directly on the image with the markers. Then I used my aquapainter to spread the colours around the rest of the image. I really wanna take a watercolouring class....but for now, I'm teachin' myself. My teacher sucks.....baaaaahahahaaaaaa!! Just kidding. So I matted the image on Pink Passion and then Basic Black. The card base is Taken with Teal which I sponged around the edges and stamped some doodley swirls by Autumn Leaves in black ink and added the $ Michael's sentiment at the bottom. I threw on some black organdy and white narrow organdy ribbon and pop dotted the main image (what would my cards be without the 3-d effect....I ask you)!!

And today I have the WHOLE day off work.....I'm so excited!! And it's supposed to be beautiful sunny weather, so I'm going to enjoy part of it outside.....in between the laundry and dishes and of course,......... I gotta stamp!!!

Kimmie, don't fire your teacher just yet...she seems to know what she is doing! I really love the fun color combination you have. Great card.

Pretty card - great colors and the ribbon is perfect. I'm with you, I don't like to do a lot of techniques - too messy.
