October 21, 2015 Mum's the Word


I LOVE the way this card turned out.  I won this set from MHK Designs called Mums the Word, it has 1 image and 3 sentiments.  I always need saying like this for my chemo buddies.  This was truly an experiment in coloring.  I had watched a video on coloring with Dewert watercolor pencils and OMS - never would have thought of that and I really like the way this turned out.  I love using the watercolor pencils with water but now I see that they are also multi purpose, what fun.  I used a paper pack from a dear friend Diana (one of my crafting buddies).  The paper is from Kaiser Craft and has a beautiful selection of purples, plus some punch outs (scallop border below the focal image.  I had to add just a bit of bling and some purple twine and this card is ready to go in the mail.
