Determined...

... to make a card using the second background stamp/watercolor sample I did on Day 2.  It has been staring me down for a few days =] 

 
"No matter which letters of the alphabet I use, I'm stopping by to say "HI" and "LUV U."
 
I've totally fallen for the sentiment stamps from Winnie & Walter's Big and Bold set.  The little 'bonjour' is from an old Basic Grey set - one of the first I ever purchased!  It's been around a while =]
 
Yesterday's Watercolor Class was just amazing.  Until Monday when this class started, I never realized how little I use colored inks.  Needless to say, I have a newfound respect for Distress Inks.
 
I'm keeping a list of items I'd like to purchase - it is not good =[

Thanks, Ardyth... I only have two Distress Ink pads! Spiced Marmalade, and Brick Red [maybe] =]

I am very much... though I wish I had more of the supplies the instructors use =[ So many things to buy!! But I do the best I can with what I have... that background was done with only two Distress Inks... which is all I have - Ha!

Glad you like it... I'm so in love with your sentiment stamps - your penmanship is far better than mine =]
