Wanna Getaway?


Throughout the fall and winter I had a couple of opportunities to travel for work.  What is a crafty girl to do?  I simply packed my 12 pc. Intense pencils, a watercolor brush and some pre-stamped images and had a crafty time in the hotel room after work was done.  I'm finally getting around to making cards from these image.  This card is the first.

This image was stamped in Archival black ink onto watercolor paper using my Gorjuss Getaway stamp set.  I will say that some of the coloring imperfections are a result of the poor lighting in most hotel rooms.  Still, pairing this image with some Making Memories (old!) paper flowers with pearl centers and patterned paper from the stash really works to let our 'lil Miss take center stage of this card.  There are improvements I'd make looking back, but she's wonderful just as she is too.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
