Watercoloring on D-Day


Watercolored for a friend who needs good thoughts.

As I post this I am listening to the D-Day ceremony in Normandy.  I remain overwhelmed with gratitude, admiration, and pride at the numbers of men who literally put one foot in front of the other, saving the world from madness.

And on that note...

    1. Merry, yes it is quite easy. White embossing on watercolor paper. then add watercolors (I used Tombow pens and distress inks) with water and a paint brush. Let each color dry. I'll make another card and do photos. In the meantime, check out Kristina Werner's latest video -- it is up today. She uses a very similar technique and her results are amazing.

  6. What a beautiful card, Joan! I watched a bit of the D-Day coverage on CNN while waiting for car service this morning. I liked that all the dignitaries were escorted by children at the Sword Beach ceremony.
