It’s Watercolor Wednesday and what a tough challenge we got today. It seemed like it was going to be wicked easy. I thought I was going to have my card done in no time at all. I watched the five minute video and quickly got to work. I taped down my Fabriano Hot Press paper and painted my trees:
Oh dear. I think I got a little carried away with the jigger-jagger-jigger-jagger on the left tree. But that’s OK. It will look better once I dab on the leaves, right? I started with copy paper, but that blobbed, so I switched to parchment paper. It was better, but still not great.
I should just give up, right? Toss out these ridiculous trees and call it day. No way. I’m not going to let the trees win. I truly believe that you can fix anything with cute critters and puns. It’s not such a bad tree after all. It just a little love…and some trick or treaters.
I stamped these sweet Paperie Ink critters at a friend’s house and they were perfect for my scene. I fussy cut them at the bus stop this morning. Then I arranged them on the card and took a picture, so I could recreate it.
I thought that tree on the left was such a disaster, but it ended up being my favorite of the two cards. Here is the other finished product:
The moral of the story is never give up and neve throw anything away.
I’m playing along with the following challenges today:
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
