Mojo Monday

Hi and happy Mojo Monday everyone! Julee has a super sketch that was perfect to incorporate some watercoloring in the background. I then took it a step further and watercolored the little birdies.  Since I'm in baby mode after hearing there will be two new babies in the Cullen clan this fall, I simply had to go with a baby-themed card!

After the Peacock Feathers distress ink dried, I splattered the base with white Heidi Swapp color shine.  Next...I dropped the bottle and emptied half of it on my lap...yep...on my favorite black slacks!  I did a quick strip down and ran to the laundry room to get them washed in cold water. :-/  I watercolored the wings on a second set of stamped birds, then fussy cut and popped with foam tape.
STAMPS: Making A Statement (Verve)
PAPER: Ranger watercolor CS, PTI Tropical Teal and Limeade Ice.
ACCESSORIES: Loopy Blooms die by Verve; Diagonal Stripe Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti; Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics by MFT; Stitched square die by Lil' Inker Designs; Enamel dot; Wood veneer stars by Studio Calico.

Wanda Cullen (you are here)

Before I close my post, I wanted to share a couple of photos of Quinn checking out her mommy's belly.  She's not understanding it all quite yet, but is loving her big girl bunny bed in the meantime!  Her brother is due to arrive August 5.

I'm heading out (this was pre-posted on Friday evening) to eat with our daughter and son, DIL and Quinn at an Asian fusion restaurant that serves Thai, Chinese and Japanese foods.  Yummmm!!  My DH is not a fan, so while he's out of town for the w/e, we will enjoy.

Hope to see you in the Mojo Monday gallery!
