Willowgrove Meets Tombow


Good afternoon. I did something this week I have never done before. What you ask? I played with Julee's Mojo Monday sketch. Every week I say, "I'm definately going to play along," but just never seem to get around to it. Well, with my Friday being as bad as it was, I decided to start my week off with a bang in getting my many goals completed day-by-day. The minute I saw Julee's sketch I knew I had to play along because this is one darn cute layout--wouldn't you agree? This was a very fun way to start my week for sure!
I pulled out my new rubbah from Willowgrove Stamps. This CD set has 19 individual pieces, which I combined for today's card.
Next, I pulled out my Tombow markers and watercoloured with them onto watercolour paper. I even played around with the background to make it have a tie-die effect. It is so much prettier in real life.
For my readers in the Sarnia area, you will be interested to know that my upcoming class, at Lasting Impressions, is based on this card. In April, participants will complete four cards, but just for you I'll do something special--I'll create your kit so you can complete this card instead of the four if you wish, but don't tell anyone--it's a special offer just for you :)
Stamping Hugs,
Beth
