Shane says. . . .


Shane saw me getting ready to post to my blog. Usually, I schedule a few posts at a time, because I just can’t post every day a lot of the time.

Shane picked this as his favorite card of the group I was getting ready to post and declared the other cards “GIRLY”.

This is another odd size base being a 5 ½ x 7 sheet of CS folded in half – my DP is from the DP scrap box, the brown is from a scrap pile and, yeah, this is all to use up scraps.

The base is a mustardy green color and really is speckled which looks sharp with the screen in the DP. My green layer behind my image panel is, I think, Kiwi Kiss.

I colored my card with my SU markers on water color paper then blended with a brush and water.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!

Very nice card. Your colouring is really good, and thank you for explaining how you did it, I never thought of blending my SU markers with water, but the effect is great.
