Today the Challenge is Say It With Words. Words being the focus....
Our Sponsor is Winnie & Walter and they gave us stamp sets of our choice.
I am using the Kindness Set. I just love it because of the fun whimsical trees and yet such
thought provoking sentiments, a perfect balance!!
So I wanted to have a little fun with this one.I cut out papers and with each image in mind
I swished on the water colors. After drying I stamped each one.
I stamped parts of the sentiments and then cut them up and added with some
doodling and faux stitching around the edges. I matted each on a cardstock to enhance
the card. I tried to achieve a sort of whimsical
scene for each one of these little note cards.
I live in the desert Southwest and although we dont have much green we have the most fantastic
colors in our sunrise and sunsets as you can see from my blog header.
Sometimes the skies are soft pastels and sometimes Boldly colored!
I chose a pastel colored sky to go with the cactus.
The fun part about these is there is no perfection expected. The sun was round but just kept
bleeding till it became lopsided, and that was the fun of just swishing on colors!
This is my favorite tree, it looks like a sucker.
. You know the giant ones with the colors the swirl round and round! Standing there large and stately reminding us of the importance of kindness
and its Big effects that are like throwing a pebble in the pond!
This crooked little tree stands alone showing off its beauty and giving shade in the wide open spaces..
You just never know where kindness will show up do you!!
So pop on over to our TUESDAY THROWDOWN CHALLENGE and join us!
