Today's card was inspired by a wedding invitation layout I saw on Pinterest. (If you follow the link, scroll down a bit to see the exact inspiration.)
The card combines a sentiment from Papertrey's Everyday Blessings set and a flower from Altenew's Botanical Garden set. The flower was colored with watercolor pencils and lightly brushed with an aqua-painter blotted on paper towel...just enough water to spread the pigment, not enough to seriously warp the paper.
If you work with watercolor pencils, remember you can add pigment to the wet paper if you need more intensity.
I recently hit a rough patch with cardmaking and cleaned/organized my craft space, taking some pictures in the process. It helped jump-start my creativity nicely, but I was wondering if you would like to see some of that reorganizing here on the blog? It's nothing cosmic, but sometimes it's fun to see how others work/organize/manage their stash of goodness. Don't want to bore you, though.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
