PTI Watercolor

Ok, I was ready to start making cards for PTI's watercolor challenge and just found out I had to make a birthday card and 5 Valentine tags to decorate some glassine bags to bring to a birthday party on Thursday.  Somehow I didn't get the email that it was planned for Thursday.
  So, in a panick I completed my task for the day and was then able to make a card for the challenge.
I finally finished my card.  I used Fancy Folkart (for the first time) by white embossing it and then colored in with water color pencils and used an aqua brush to water color them.  I was quite pleased with how it came out.  So soft and springy.  Sorry the picture isn't better.  The banner is from Stitched Sentiments.

Birthday Card for Kathy former co-worker

Card for Kathy B. one of my former co-workers whose birthday is February 16th.

PTI - Sketch #3 Challenge

I have been so busy with a CAS on-line class with Jennifer McGuire that I have not had time to enter any of PTI's February festivities.  So, this is my first post using sketch #3 as my first card.  
Stamp set is Background Basics Super Stripes, in Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores and Harvest Gold.  The sentiment is a Fiskars sentiment set and the flower that I received as Valentine gifts this past week both from my Secret Sister.  I was pretty proud of myself for figuring out how to make these come to a point, cause my first couple of attempts did not work and I am not good at seeing things in my head..  I ended up masking each side and what do you know it worked.  Yahoo...
