Happy Presidents Day

Hi there…
Thanks for visiting me today.

I will make it short, the kids are off from school this week and we are heading out.
I have had a little play with watercolors, it has been probably good 2 years since I watercolor last time a image.

For the beginning I wanted something little and also was looking to make a lightweight card to post. When the “God Bless America” Collection” came out in 2012 I was just getting ready for my trip to Germany and I did not get a chance to play with them, so when I realized on Saturday that Presidents Day is on Monday I pulled the stamps out.

The background was made by randomly applying red and blue to Fabiano hot-pressed watercolor paper, folded in half and squished together – I let that dry, added the sentiment in Stazon black over that and covered the piece with Distress rock Candy paint. Once everything was dried I added my stitching with the sewing machine. The card shape was made with one of my new Nestabilitie shapes “Postage stamps”.

Everything else is straight forward. Water coloring Tilda she can be found in the “God Bless America” collection and the banner in with a water tank brush, and adding some Stickles to areas. I also used a piece of Tim Holtz film strip over the banner just to add a little more embellishment.
