Feeling under the weather?


I took a break from putting up Christmas stuff and sneezing (I hate cedar & allergies) to make a quick card. I started by using this sketch from Amy. Yesterday, I showed my mom how to watercolor using the SU markers so of course I had to put the image to good use. My bella is stamped on watercolor paper using Palette Noir. I then used my SU markers and an aquapainter to color her in. An additional umbrella is colored, cut out and raised with a dimensional. This was my first time using baubles. I saw them out of the corner of my eye while I was stamping and they immediately reminded me of raindrops. I just attached them using mini glue dots. I really like this color combo..it's nice to use some Spring colors now that Christmas is over :) Happy Stamping!
