About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Watercolor Rose

Happy Friday Everyone!!  Wow!!  I cannot believe how fast this week has gone by.

Last week my really good friend in California who loves to make cards like I do...sent me a WHOLE bunch of goodies just out of the blue.  I was so surprised.  But the main thing she sent was the Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

 She had seen a technique in Splitcoast Stampers for Distress Marker Painting.  So we ended up challenging each other to do a project and this is what I came up with...

Aren't the results pretty?  It's results are just like water coloring.
 The stamped image is from the May 2013 KOM. 
The large sculpted rose is from the Sizzix Susan's Garden line and the small one is from the mini Impression Obsession die.  The frame is from Spellbinders.
The patterned paper is from My Minds Eye!
I used VersaMark watermark stamp and black embossing powder.

I hope you like my project.  Thanks for looking.
