Press On!


Hello friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I got to spend time with my kids so that was fun.  I have however not been feeling great since so am laying a bit low.  I am popping in to share a water color I did for an challenge on SCS but have not had the chance to share with you here on my blog yet.

This card uses a Stampin Up set, Simply Sketched, as well as a Sweet 'N Sassy sentiment.  I love them both!  For the image, I stamped with Archival ink and used Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze and So Saffron to color the image (this was a color challenge).  I matted with Sahara Sand and So Saffron.  I added score lines to the white panel to create the "illusion" of layers.  It's clean and simple, but I kind of like how it came out.  Hope you do too!

Have a wonderful week!!!

Today's Blessing:
Proverbs 16:9
We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.

Oh my! This one got clicked on and enlarged. I like a lot of the water colors right now but this is a piece of art. All of the colors have a purpose and every stroke a place. CAS yes but it deserves a BRAVO.

Hi Grace! This is lovely...so serene with a rich depth of color. I have RA and have had a more difficult time lately with fatigue and pain. Though I know it could also be worse...you have to learn to pace yourself. I hope you are feeling much better now. Hugs!!
