My husband came 22nd out of 288 runners and my son came 78th out of 414, very proud of them both.
So, other than birthday cards, I make more thank you cards than any other. I saw a picture on the docrafts website of a watercolour effect and wanted to try and recreate it (in my way!!)
Again, apologies that its upside down....I will get the hang of this one day!
So, I really liked the watercoloured thanks but I really wasn't sure about the corners and the pearls. I kept looking and looking at the card and wasn't happy so decided to try again.
Now, this one I liked!!!
I stamped the sentiment ( fron Stampin Up!) and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then used Brushos as paint for the watercolouring. The difference with this card is that I splattered it with the watered down Brushos and for some reason, I was much happier.
This card is for a friend of ours who has been helping my youngest son with a bit of extra tuition and will stop next week for the summer. We are very grateful for her time and effort.
I learned with this not to settle, if I'm not happy with something I need to try again...I'm sure its something I tell my kids frequently but obviously need to remind myself sometimes.
Thanks for stopping by, take care.
