Correcting my boo boo

I entered a card that wasn't watercolor and this is my new entry to replace it in the casmixup challenge. I water colored Tim Holtz water color paper with Catherine Pooler inks. I added the inks to my glass mat and spritzed with water, then onto the paper. I'm pretty pleased since it is not my strong suit. I used a Poppy Stamps leaf die to cut them out. The soft sage c/s was embossed with a leaf folder by Darice. An Impression Obession die cut the Thankful from the same watercolor paper.  I'm sorry Loll and all the designers who work so hard to do this for us.







Be kind to one another.

  2. Don't worry about your boo boo Brenda, it's something that we all do from time to time. I once entered a stamping challenge with a card that had no stamping on it whatsoever! :) Your card is beautiful and I love the touch of pink that you've added to the colours, it looks really pretty x

  4. Jeepers, Brenda, this is magnificent! It's my new fav card of yours. The colors you achieved with your smooching make the most beautiful watercolored leaves and I love the way you did the sediment, too. A stunning fall design! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Hey friend, your leaves are gorgeous, I want to get messy with paint and I especially love leaves, so you have inspired me! Hope all is well! We finally had some rain and that is great for keeping the fires at bay...but I think we are scheduled for 10 straight days of nice sunny days ahead! Yeah for fall! Take care friend!

  15. We've all did it at one time or another Brenda, but you fixed it and that is all that counts. This card is stunning with those autumn colored leaves and sentiment! I love those big leaves, the embossing is perfect and so beautiful. But it is your watercoloring that is just gorgeous. Just a gorgeous, gorgeous card! Hugs, Brenda
