Back To Basics

Oh, happy Friday everybody! This is my favorite day of the week because it means I get to stop for a minute and rest. I know there's no alarm clock coming tomorrow and I love that. Now, on to the card. Yeah, I totally CASEd this one from Julee over at Poetic Artistry. Yeah, another stolen, er borrowed, idea. I've been stalking her site for quite some time because I find her work amazing. Anywho, there are some obvious differences between our cards, so I really just take an idea and do with it what I can. I think the only thing that's the same with our cards is the flowery thingy. She colored hers with copics and I went waaaay back to one of the first things I started doing with my cards and watercolored mine. I even used watercolor paper for this card just to see if it was any different than regular old paper. I could tell the difference, but only when I was doing the watercoloring. But when you're just looking at it, it looks and feels like textured paper. I did mean to have less of the flowery thingy showing at the bottom, but that's what happens when I'm not using clear stamps. I'm spoiled. If I can't see thru my stamp, my placement is just going to be off. I could have cut my paper after I stamped it, but I was just too lazy to start over. I do want to point out this funny coincidence. There are people who are putting a lot of effort into finding markers & pencils that match the new Papertrey colors of paper, ribbon & ink. When I was using my pencils yesterday to color my flower thingies, I realized that my pencil perfectly matches Papertrey's Sweet Blush. Huh, how 'bout that? Only, I have no idea what color it is. It just says Reeves on it. No name, no number...I don't even know where I got it. I think Michael's, but I'm not 100% on that. Gosh, that sure was helpful. Sorry. I can only give what I've got. Have a fabutastic weekend everybody!
