Make a Splash - House Mouse Challenge 77
Hello everyone - you may or may not have noticed I changed the heading and background of my blog - I really didn't like the other look I had and although I am not totally satisfied with the new look - I like it better than it was - so I guess that is a step in the right direction. I am not good with all the computer technical stuff - maybe one day I will hire someone to customize my blog to exactly how I would like it but for now this is it - my card for today is for the House Mouse challenge 77 - Make a Splash - anything water goes - I actually tried to watercolor the image but tried a few times and then gave up - I was not getting the results I wanted - I need more practice with that. I pulled out my trustworthy copics and colored in the image adding some white gel pen highlights. There is not too much to this card other than a sizzix frame diecut, prima flower, faux stitching, 3 small blue brads in the corners. I did use Tim Holtz stormy sky for the background of the image - I sponged that on first and then colored my image. I used a sticker I had for the sentiment - I placed it down and it wasn't completely straight - so that kind of bugs me - I did try to lift it up again to move it slightly but the paper lifted up too - so I left it alone!! This image reflects the type of day we have here today - overcast and rainy - hopefully our indian summer will kick in soon - it is way too cold for my liking - hope you have a fabulous day!!
