I'm playing along with two great challenges: Inspired by...All the Little Things and Freshly Made Sketches. I loved all the texture in the old building, so I knew I wanted to use texture paste over the watercolor wash background. I was also inspired by the colors and it gave me a chance to use my fave distress ink combo - Cracked Pistachio and Evergreen Bough! The pop of blue was accomplished by adding a couple of stitched heart dies.
My daughter is going to be starting her first traveling nurse
assignment in Omaha, Nebraska in June. She's a fiercely independent young lady who has quite the travel bug and has been on numerous trips already and it doesn't look like she'll stop anytime soon! She's currently taking a 4000 mile trip through the midwest with a former roomie...hitting Fargo, ND 2 days ago, Boseman, Montana yesterday and then heading toward Yellowstone and Glacier national parks! From there, they'll come south through Wyoming, Colorado and eventually will end up in Omaha. That was a long tale to get to the point of this card's sentiment - lol!
PAPER: Ranger watercolor CS; Pool Party (SU); cobalt blue CS is from my leftover scrap pile and I'm not sure of the source.
