I truly enjoy making cards, yet it's funny, or weird, or perhaps just the way I create - I 'work' or rather, play card maker when I'm inspired. Earlier today I thought, I should make a few cards, but there I sat, moving papers around, getting frustrated, and we all know that's no fun. I did what was best - I walked away.
Where do I find inspiration? Here, there, and everywhere - anywhere. It's never forced - it just happens. Soooo, I was watchin' X-Files (with the lights on), and sketching, then - inspiration, and I headed back to my craft room.
Over the coming days, I'll be posting cards I completed today. For each of my watercolour cards, I used Bister powders - experimenting - fun!
This card makes me smile - it's a happy Happy Birthday card. At first I considered orange for the base but it kind of overpowered the pinks and oranges. I was moved to pick up a white base and inspiration! As for the butterflies - I had them in my stash of butterflies. They were also made using Bister powders, but I used photo paper rather than watercolour. The pic doesn't show it, but they're super shiny. Stamp on the sentiment and done! Love!
Here's what I realized today. When I make cards that bring me joy the card reflects exactly that - joy!
Stop by again soon - I'll be posting cards I completed today,
Whoa....wait - by the way - did you catch the song reference?
