Here's my very first Tuesday Trigger inspired card - I've been admiring those photos and the lovely creations inspired by them for a long time and thought I'd finally join in!
Here's the incredibly pretty photo Cath chose this week:
It's called Pastel Pretties and I immediately thought of my button stash - how fun to go through and choose pretty pastel ones to match!
I brushed water across a water color paper panel and then added some strokes of water color paint before spraying with water to make them spread and "do their thing"!
Sometimes it can be hard not to have the paint go muddy if it mixes too much, so I was pleased that I managed to accomplish this on the first try!
I then used a toothbrush and a paintbrush to spritz and splotch on larger bits of paint and then dried with a heat tool to make the paint spread a bit.
The sentiment is from Verve's Words of Wisdom and it's stamped in My Favorite Things Color Box Black Licorice ink.
I think I'll save this card for my parents - they are 72 and 73 and have been trying to sell their businesses and retire for a number of years - I would just love for them to be able to have a rest and do new things after so many years of hard work, both providing for our family and also creating jobs in a small community. Recently it's beginning to look like it might work out for them - I'll give them this card when their dream of retirement becomes a reality!
