Hi friends! This is Word Week at Just Us Girls and "bird" is the word!
Have you ever bought a stamp, never used it, then find the perfect time to use it? Today was the day for this stamp! I purchased it last summer at a stamp show because I love silhouette images. I watercolored the background with Peerless watercolors. The colors are much darker than they appear here. I couldn't capture the pretty colors. I splattered some water on it when it was dry then blotted it. Using the mini MISTI, I stamped the image...several times! Thank goodness for the MISTI because it did not stamp well on this rough watercolor paper! I think I stamped it 5 or 6 times. I didn't want to over embellish this, so I just added some black enamel dots around the sentiment.
This card is already in the mail to a friend who is bravely battling cancer. She had a little scare this week, but everything turned out alright. I'm sending this to her to hopefully cheer her up and let her know we are thinking of her.
You can see more from our JUGs DT and our new guest for June, Cornelia Wenokor on the JUGs blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
