Back to Normal

Well our vacation to the beach is over, the catalog is out and life is almost back to "normal"...but that's okay. Here's a card I made using Tombow markers to watercolor my flower. I really love that look. And, I really love to use gamsol and colored pencils...so why am I toying with breaking down and getting COPICS? argh... Our latest catalog has some tempting color palettes and I may just start with one of those first, to "dabble" with them.

Back to the card. I love the tone on tone base layers. And that green strip is from the Sands of Time paper. That's a great collection because it has papers that can be either very feminine or masculine...and even neutral.

Card Materials: all stamps and papers from The Angel Company
Stamps: Flowers and Holly
Accessories: Kraft paper, Sands of Time, watercolor paper, Tombow markers, ribbon, Nestabilities, CB embossing plate, border punch, ribbon and silver clip that I embossed in black!

Hope you have a super week. We are supposed to hit 100 degrees today...stay cool!

Chris, great coloring job! I am planning on coming to your open house. It'll probably be Friday afternoon but will let you know for sure. Do you want me to bring my copics over? We finally get to meet face to face!!!
