Courage...

Hi there!

Oh this card - WOW - so much I love, amazing how a mistake can turn out looking ok! :D

I wanted to try water coloring which I have never done before and I learned so much!!

Overall after stamping, embossing and coloring the flowers, the colors were a bit 'bolder' than I wanted, so I grabbed ... what I THOUGHT ... was a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. Turns out I grabbed the WHITE Wink of Stella pen - that thing is cool; initially it gave the flowers a nice toned down tint...then as it started to dry it turned the flowers WHITE! Hmmm...wonder why? LOL

I used a baby wipe and gently wiped each flower to remove a bit of the White Wink of Stella pen which left such a great look to the flowers! The yellow is a water color crayon, I colored around each flower then painted with water to draw the color out.


And that sentiment? SWOON; love it so very much! "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

A bit of fun black and white washi tape and a small strip of black finishes the card off!

Thanks for popping in; hope you have a GREAT week! See you again soon!

Hugs,
