Despite having a bunch of sickies in this house and being overtired, I decided the best thing to do today was to stamp the day away on today's color challenge and Jenn's SFYTT sketch challenge for this week. It took me all day because of the constant need for attention from my patients (sick hubby and still two sick children) but I managed to get it done and get a picture of it in the daylight. Quite an accomplishment!!!!

The image I used is one that I just received from Sugar Nellie called "Rope Swing" It was so much fun to watercolor!! What a darling image!! It was a challenge to use today's color challenge since the kiwi kiss and more mustard are a little out of my comfort zone. Once I found this great designer paper from K&Co. (Classic K), the rest of the card flowed. It was a great release for me and a lot of fun! I stamped the image 3 times in brown stazon on watercolor paper. I painted the dress using gable green and rose red (using my watercolor markers), and the hair and shoes have shades of more mustard and brown. Then I cut and layered the image for a 3D effect. The tree in the background is stamped using the fern from A Touch Of Nature.
Card Recipe:
Stamps: Sugar Nellie-Rope Song, SU- Touch of Nature
Paper: K&Co. Classic K, Old Olive CS, Chocolate Chip CS
Accessories: Fiskars Sunburst Border Punch, brown American Crafts ribbon, Vintage Corner dies from Cuttlebug, buttons, sewing machine and brown thread, swiss dot embossing folder, and label 3 nestability
Thanks for visiting my blog today!! I hope you enjoyed today's post as much as I enjoyed making it.
