Time Out for PEACE

          Hello, today I was over on the Time Out Challenge Blog. ( CLICK HERE if you want to check it out). I was inspired by the card that Michele made for us to CASE.....

I also really like the Time Out Challenge because they want us all to take time out to create.....the World would be a much better place if everyone could do something that makes me as happy and at peace as I am when I am creating.

When I saw her card it reminded me of a floral image from Altenew’s Just Because  that I Heat embossed and watercolored a little bit a go that was waiting to be in a finished project. Then I found the perfect MFT Dienamic Die to go with it....and here is how it turned out....

Oh, wow... I am so sorry about that picture. I took that at 2pm today and it was so dark and looks horrible 😕. Hopefully we will have sun again soon and I remember to try again.

I watercolored the images with handmade Watercolors from both Cloves and Honey and 31purplefish, they can both be found by those names on Instagram. Today I painted the background to go with the Die Cut and then painted the letters to create an ombre effect. Then I die cut the top letters along with four more of each letter to make it stand out. These handmade/ handmulled paints are absolutely gorgeous so if you love to watercolor you should really try them. I have an Instagram friend that just opened her store. Her paints are amazing too, you can find Erin at Happilywego or hwgwatercolors on Instagram. I will get to paint with them this evening.

Thank You for visiting my creative spot, I really appreciate it. Hope to see you back again.
