Playing with Mo's Digis...

Good morning everyone!!! (It's morning here anyway)
Ohhhh, it's been a long while since I have written.
Will I ever get in the groove of posting my craft????
I love, love, LOVE making pretty cards and working on my pages, but getting them into the blog is just hard for me. I think, for me, posting on a schedule would work...going to have to give that a good try!!!

So, I have been reading all your blogs and I am so inspired by the beautiful ideas all of you come up with. God has blessed us with such wonderful talent and for those of us who love to ooh and aah at other people's work, there is much to admire. I am just awed by the products and the new ideas that are constantly coming up on the market, the biggest challenge is not to spend more on our art than we do on food!

So on to my card. I have jumped wholeheartedly on the watercolor bandwagon. I've always loved the look of watercolors but never thought that I could actually do it. Now, with the use of stamps...it's so EASY...AND ENJOYABLE!!! I used an image from Mo's digis... http://mosdigitalpencil.com/I just love her art!!!don't you??? it's so FUN!!!
This card is for our granddaughter's birthday and I wanted an image that just epitomized who she is...well, this was PERFECT!!!

I have bought the Tombow Dual Brush watercolor markers, and I am really happy with them. It certainly takes practice to have the images come out beautiful, but they're ok even as I work on them. I took the watercolor card class with Jennifer McGuire and others. It was AWESOME!!! and really taught me a lot. But it still takes a lot of actual painting to perfect my art. But I am happy to play with my markers. My goal is to be able to watercolor with stamps and have it look like the image was not stamped at all...that's in the future!!!

As you can see, the image is simple watercoloring, and I used my Cameo to cut the words out. The circles are from a packet I picked up somewhere a while ago. It's very simple, I know, but perfect for my girl.

I have entered this card in the following challenges:

That's it for me today,
Come and enjoy my journey with me and leave me a little word about yourself, I'd love to know you were here.
