Oh my! I have a new found love/addiction for deli paper! I've been on sites watching videos on how deli paper is used for quite a few months. I just put it in the back of my mind to try sometime. Then I found this stamp from Everyday Valentine at Joggles and I knew I had to buy it.

I'm still a newbie at watercoloring these Art Impressions images. I've been practicing for quite awhile and am just now feeling comfortable enough to actually create a card with the images I've colored. I haven't tried using markers, just watercoloring with distress and marvy markers.

June Swap Cards
I haven't done much crafting since May! I finally cleaned my craft room Memorial Day weekend. It's not "perfect". I know I can do more organizing, but it's far better than what it was! I can actually find stuff now. I took a whole vehicle full of stuff to t...
I haven't done much crafting since May! I finally cleaned my craft room Memorial Day weekend. It's not "perfect". I know I can do more organizing, but it's far better than what it was! I can actually find stuff now. I took a whole vehicle full of stuff to the Goodwill.

I finally took the plunge and watercolored three cards to use as my swap cards this month. This was a big step for me as it was way outside my comfort zone! I've been practicing my watercolor technique for about a year now. I just haven't felt comfortable giving one of them away.

You're Freaking Amazing
After I had this card almost completely adhered down, I questioned my choice of colors.  Has that ever happened to you?  To make matters worse, when it was already glued to the card base I noticed that I had it so off center it look ridiculous. I ripped it ...
To make matters worse, when it was already glued to the card base I noticed that I had it so off center it look ridiculous. I ripped it off and centered it correctly all the while wondering if I was wasting my time. Then I realized why I liked it so much and decided to just go for it.

For this card I die cut my sentiment out of paper I had water colored and used the negative on the card below. I used watercolor paper, Tim Holtz Distress markers and then spritzed the paper with water. I like to let my paper air dry rather than heat dry. I just like the look a little better.
