A Sweet Card and Winners of the Giveaway


Made this after I saw this clever notebook on Pinterest.

Watercolored the green rind, and, while that was drying, watercolored the red and pink fruit. Mixed some very pale gray paint for the space between the green and red and let some of the paints merge. Hand painted the seeds. Stamped a sentiment from Altenew's Layered Cupcake and drew the lines with a black copic liner pen and ruler.

That was fun.

Speaking of fun, I picked two winners because the giveaway box was getting huge. Thanks to all of you who commented.

Winners:  Merry F. and Cheryl Robertson. I've sent emails to both.  Cheryl, I haven't heard back. Please check your spam folder for an email entitled "Winner of Blog Giveaway."

MOOD WHEN DONE = This is one of my favorite cards. So I'm happy!!!

  9. Oh. My. GOSH!! This is so amazing I could almost pass out! It gives me a little adrenaline rush. Seriously. That green rind! Totally amazing watercolor expertise. I know I should go look at the notebook, too. I pinned your card, but tough decision whether to put it under "cute cards" or "beautiful cards". It's BOTH to me!
