Feline Spooky – Watercolor Wednesday Challenge #73

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:

Anything Goes



Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
