How did it become 2020? Wow - time flies - can't always say it was fun but we survived.
Let's start out the new year of 2020 with the January watercolor challenge at Happy Little Stampers. As always, the challenge is Anything Goes with the option of using Die Cuts.
I recently spent approximately a month in Florida puppy sitting for some friends. I was unable to take my studio with me so I narrowed my creative soul to watercolor. I stamped many images and colored them but I also cruised around Pinterest and found creations I wanted to attempt to try. This is one of the little art pieces I did. It is amazing how some black doodles will bring a blob of paint to life.
This is a very odd sized card because who was thinking of making a card when you were playing. I liked it so well I wanted to make it into a birthday card for my daughter. I think she will like it and appreciate it. She was a very good artist when she was in high school.
The die cut is a circle birthday sentiment from My Favorite Things. The entire circle did not fit on the card any place but if I cut it in half I had a couple spots I could add it without covering up the birds. I added the black and white stripe paper from My Favorite Things and then since it is a birthday card, I had to add just a little bling - a tiny strip of blue glitter paper.
Here is some close ups of the birds.
I am so glad Pinterest is out there to help us "wanna be" artists have a starting point.
Please come play with the January watercolor challenge at Happy Little Stampers.
