No Laughing Allowed!
Ok, I gathered up all my supplies.......Watercolors - I've been using a little tin of grade school type watercolors and everyone kept saying to get the "good" kind and I'd be able to tell the difference. So, I'm scooting through WallyWorld the other day I noticed they had some watercolors in little tube type deals by Daler Rowney. Since they were about $3.00 dollars more than the grade school kind, I figured those had to be better! (Last of the big spenders here you know). Ok, watercolors - check! Watercolor paper, embossing folder, card stock, Distress Markers, Stampendous stamp, and SSS sentiment - check! Little glass of water, paper towel, and even my dollar store palette! No problems......
I'm ready to set the world on fire........Started with the background. Holy Moly! This is not fun....just messy and HARD! Too much water - pill bugs start to appear. Not enough water - it just sits there! Finally managed to salvage this little piece that was passable (pill bugs and all). Stamped the butterfly and used the Distress Markers for watercoloring that. I'm pretty sure this is the forth or fifth one I attempted. Rest got tossed pretty fast. Cut this one out, stamped it again on the watercolor background, and then popped this up on top of it. Maybe I'll even try this again someday.......maybe - and yes, I'm sure it would have pill bugs too!!
Thanks for stopping by.........and have a fun weekend.
