Inspiration Challenge #5 the card


Here ya go...my inspiration challenge piece. I actually made two cards, but I like this one best out of the two. Maybe I will post the second one tomorrow?? I felt like playing with watercolor paper this morning, so I grabbed a piece and went to town stamping the images then spritzing the paper with a light mist of water. Makes the images must softer and well...water colored looking. LOL! Don't forget to check out what Carrie made for the challenge. I am heading over there right now, she always has the coolest ideas! If you played along don't forget to leave a comment with your link here so that I can showcase all of your work for everyone to see.
Thanks so much for the sweet comments on my Owl card. This is one of the rare times that I had the idea in my head and actually got it out on paper. I won't even tell you how long that card took me (like all weekend). I should have taken a picture with each step, because he looks completely different from when I started. Now of course Friday won't come fast enough for me when they announce who made it to the next round...eeek!
Have a wonderful day and thanks again.
Big hugs!
