I'm SO excited! My cabinets are HERE and they are installing them over the next few days!!! WOOHOO!!! It's about time, feels like I've waited FOREVER! Next, they come out on Wednesday to measure for the countertops and make a template, then that should get installed next week. Yeah…I can start putting my studio back together after the water damage occurred from the sump pump failure on New Year's Day! I'm in LOVE with what they have done so far! Happy, happy!!!
I had lots of time to play today since I had to hang around the house, so I worked on several challenges! This one at The Paper Players featured a Clean & Simple Watercoloring Challenge!
Peace Within is one of those sets that I purchased to work on my watercoloring skills. It is one of the stamp sets that is being retired. I figure I'll be featuring a lot of the sets that will retire over the next six weeks, just so I can use them a couple more times! I love the little kitty sitting in the chair. I colored her the same as my little Bleach!
I stamped the Peace Within image in Black Stazon on Very Vanilla cardstock. I used Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, Basic Gray and Soft Suede Stampin' Write Markers and my AquaPainter to color in the image. Then highlighted the areas with my White Gel Pen. It is layered on Early Espresso cardstock.
The base card is Early Espresso and I layered on Cajun Craze. I took Well Worn Designer Paper and cut it with the largest Label Framelit, then cut that in half so I could put one on top and one on the bottom. I used Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon and tied it around to make a knot. Finally, I stamped the greeting from Peace Within with Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla and punched with the Large Oval, then layered on the Early Espresso Scallop Oval punch.
I'm happy how it turned out!
