Exploring Watercolor Mediums

I am taking another Online Card Class and this one is all about watercoloring and exploring different mediums.  I used Distress inks on Tim Holtz watercolor paper for this one.   I make cards for church and these cards are going to the college students.  The class was perfect for this card.  I really love the effect "smooshing" makes.

We have had lots of rain in the last 24 hours.  Just under 5 inches at my house and it is raining again.  

Thanks for looking.  Until next time, happy trails to you...

 A couple of weeks ago I was invited to an annual event at a beautiful golf course.  No, we didn't play golf, there were hot air balloons there and also dinner and some speakers.  The weather was perfect and we had a wonderful time.  I made this card to thank them for inviting me.  My daughter  and son in law, and grandkids and even a girl friend came along.  A perfect evening.  Of course this is colored with my Copics.  

My friend Stephanye and I went to see War Room today.  We both enjoyed the movie alot.  The cast was very good and there was a lot of humor mixed in the movie.  

Until next time, happy trails to you!!

Whispers of Your Heart

My group had a color challenge recently that called for us to mix gold and raspberry.  I made this card.  The gold cardstock was the beginnings of a card.  Then I stamped the flower with Versamark on vellum and then used gold embossing powder and heated it.  I then colored it with my Copic markers.  I used a verse that I had and liked using the gold embossing powder as well.  A scattering of sequins and gold stars finished the card.  I was pleased with the turn out of this card.  I really love the sentiment.

Well, September is here and fall is around the corner.  School has started, meetings at church have resumed, Bible study is soon to start and the fall and winter will be here soon.  It was extremely hot here yesterday but now it is nice and I am trying to soak up all of the nice weather I can before the winter chill. 

Until next time, happy trails to you...
