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.
