I have always like to color. Whenever I was depressed as a young adult, I would pull out my trusty crayons or colored pencils and my favorite coloring books (usually of the Disney-themed variety) and would spend time coloring. It always makes me happy. I can't draw to save my life, but coloring sure is the best.
This brings me to last Wednesday. I was scrolling through facebook as I usually do when an instagram post from Sweet Stamp Shop caught my eye. Those beautiful watercolor flowers inspired me to try making some of my own. Keep in mind, I can't draw worth a lick, but I am absolutely in love with the way this card turned out:
I masked off the center with some contact paper that I had cut into a banner shape with a onesie in the middle. Then I started playing around with the colors, layering as I went along. For the sentiment, I used two stamps from Avery Elle's Oh Happy Day stamp set. I masked off the "oh" and the "day" from one stamp to get the "happy" by itself. I also used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the center of the flowers because everything looks better with a little sparkle. :) I think this turned out so cute and I am so excited to send it to a friend of mine who is expecting her second little girl.
That is all for today! Stop by tomorrow from some pretty awesome news! Until then...
