Well I started walking again yesterday. I have not walked since my sciatica acted up over a year ago. I have to start slow but at least it is a start. I did not go far. I work my way up to walking 3 miles a day. I won’t get that far for about 3 – 4 weeks as it take it very slow.
My card today began with the color challenge at The Paper Players. I really liked these colors when I saw them.
I went looking for a sketch as I was working under a time crunch – Zoie was out with Mom and Dad so I needed to get as much done as I could. I found a fun one at CAS – Colours & Sketches.
When I saw this I thought it would be fun to play with the new single stamp Blended Bloom. I wanted to try doing some blending of colors on the edges. I did a watercolor wash with So Saffron on the watercolor paper stamped image. I then used my marker to trace around the petals then I used my aqua painter to paint over it again to blend the colors. You have to work in small sections so that the marker does not dry too much. After I had the flower completed and cut out, I did a watercolor wash on the watercolor paper and used the Secret Garden framelits to cut them out. When it was all finished I spritzed it with my shimmer spray. Here is what my final creation looked like.

This is a great stamp and there are so many things you can do with it besides using the Blendabilities – which I have not tried yet!
Thanks for visiting me today! I have 2 ladies coming to make up a workshop and I hope to cut my grass today. Have a Terrific Tuesday!
