Colorful Swirls

Sorry for posting so late but unfortunately today did not start off so great and threw off the rest of my day. Our 100hr DVR bit the dust! :( Dish Network is sending us a new one but I lost all the shows I had recorded on it. Most of the shows on there were The Views that I had not finished watching yet but I have decided it is not the end of the world. At least I had seen all the Hot Topics and that is my favorite part, the other shows I lost I can catch on the computer. The one thing we lost that we can't replace is the Homeschooling interview Emilia and I did a few yrs ago for our local news station. Oh well. We should have the new DVR by Wednesday. In the meantime I am borrowing the one from Emilia's room. I just hope this does not mean it is going to be a week of electronics breaking. I hate it when that happens. I am trying to think positive though and hopefully this was just an isolated incident. :) By the way speaking of TV I have added another show to the ones I watch, it is "The Worlds Greatest Dog". One of my clients told me about it on Friday so Emilia and I watched the first episode we missed today on the computer and it was great. Can't wait for the next one. Now on to the card. This is another sample I made for LIWP. I had seen a card similar to it in the book Card Design by Dave Brethauer. I stamped the brush swirl background stamp with Versamark and embossed it with black embossing powder on 140# hot press watercolor paper. This is the first time I have used hot press watercolor paper and I really like it because it is smooth which makes it easier to stamp on. After that I used my Faber Castell watercolor pencils to color the image and blended them with my waterbrush then I added the dots with a black sharpie. I finished the watercolored image by matting it with Bazzill cardstock. Finished size 5x5" I hope you like it. That's it for now I will be back again tomorrow with one of my Papertrey Gueststar Stamper entries. Until then have a good night and thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful card! This looks like a work of art!! The sharpie dots are SO COOL, very nice touch and your coloring is amazing!
Sorry about your DVR, I never owned one so I don't know what you are missing. But then, I don't watch TV maybe I don't know what I'm missing either.

I love the card Terri and am so sorry to hear that your DVR crashed along with the home school interview. Maybe if you check with the TV station they might have a copy of it for you?

Anyway, the housewarming gift in the post before this is also beautiful. Jan Hoyt

Hi Terri - just stopping by and saw the card. Love it! I'll have to figure out how to make one myself, without purchasing that exact stamp. Something I am trying very hard to learn to do! :)
Hope all is well!
