Sending Prayers

Hello hello!  I'm popping in with a card using the Paper Players colour combo and the design from Lisa Arana's Wanna Sketch?.  I tried inking up the back of an acrylic block, spritzing it with water and stamping it to create the square of yellow.  I don't think I used quite enough water but I kind of like the unevenness of the texture.  I stamped the butterfly on some paper that I'd spattered with Calypso Coral ink.  I'm hoping to get a little more brave with water and ink.  I signed up for the Watercolour for Cardmakers class although I've only watched 2 videos so far. I've made a couple of cards but am not thrilled with them so they will not be making an appearance any time soon! Hopefully over the weekend I'll have a stretch of time to watch more videos and really play around.  Will you have some crafty time this weekend?

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White watercolor) Mead, (Pear Pizzazz) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from Flap Happy) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Butterflies 3) Paper Smooches
Punch:  (Corner rounder) Marvy Uchida
Gems:  Recollections

This is so pretty, Jen! I really like the effect of the block-inked panel. The colours plus all the white space make for a serene card.
If the weather is anything similar to what's being forecast for the weekend, I'd say there is definitely more crafting time than gardening time in my weekend!

Such a pretty card. I love that water colored ink block you created, and it is the perfect backdrop for your butterfly.
