Something old, something new!



Okay, so I have something old and something new to share with you tonight. First of all, I made this card because my daughter was invited to a birthday party for today only I (one who never checks her voicemail) just got the message last night. So this morning I made this card for her and so this is the old...I used a layout that I have used before so I wouldn't be fussing over that part (sometimes it takes me a while to get the layout just how I want it) and the something new is the way that I colored it! I totally used my ink pad lids and a water brush or as some call it, an aqua painter! I was so proud of myself, you see I am the kind of person that when I want to learn something new I want to be a professional at it, YESTERDAY! Not practice makes perfect or take a few classes or work at it for a few months, no, not me, I have to know NOW! So I decided that I wanted to learn how to watercolor and therefore I bring you this card today and I am in love with it! The watercoloring, that is. Whoo Hoo, I'm off to bed for now but tomorrow after church I am back home with my water brush! Goodnight!
