Watercolor is My Favorite

Today's Inspiration Challenge was right up my alley, as I love watercolor artwork. Stef chose this website of Mizue Hirano for us to browse. I chose this picture:



I first spritzed my watercolor paper and then squirted little drops of Barely Banana and Pretty in Pink reinkers. Then I stamped my images (Treasure Life by CTMH), distressed the edges with the Stampin' Up Cutter Tool, and wrapped Linen Thread around the main panels. The sentiment is stamped in Always Artichoke.

Yesterday I didn't get a chance to stamp as I had a dentist visit - and am now not as wise as I was yesterday, due to losing some wisdom teeth! It went well, but I am still tired! Today is another Marching Band Competition and I am a bus sponsor this time. We leave at 5:00 p.m. to travel to the site and get home at 3:00 a.m. tomorrow. Doesn't look like any stamping time in the forecast either! Just rain and cold tonight! I am taking a blanket!

Have a great weekend! I have one more Hambo Stamps thumbprint card to show you tomorrow!

Stamps: CTMH: Treasure Life
Paper: watercolor paper, Old Olive, Summer Sun, Rose Red
Ink: Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Rose Red
Accessories: linen thread, paper piercer, distressing tool
