How y’all doing today?  Finally after rain delays we are racing (while I’m typing this that is).  I have a watercolor card to share with you today.  It’s been awhile since I’ve stamped anything on watercolor paper and figured today was a good as any day to do so.

I used one of my favorite Karen Lockhart stamps (that I picked up at Papertrix last year).  The image was stamped in Ranger Archival Jet Black, and water colored with Distress Stains.  This was a first for me (the stains), and I will say it went rather quickly.  I still think the re-inkers might be more vibrant and float better, but I had to try the stains . . . at least once.

Here’s a close up of the image with all the layers, that are separated by 3D foam squares.

That’s it for now . . . because I don’t know what else to say about anything, except . . .  go Mark, go!

I don’t know about you, but every time I type Little Darlings, I think of the song . . . Little Darlin by the Diamonds!  Just sayin!

I have one final Graphic 45 CHA project to share with you today.  I’ve seen it all over the internet, so I might as well share it myself.  There were 2 items requested by Diane that we make . . . a tag and an altered container.   For my container, I chose to work with the 5×5 Kraft Board Box.

I didn’t get the inside album finished for CHA, put I do have some ideas (and inspiration) now to finish that up.


Of course, it wouldn’t be one of my projects with out flowers . . . oh how I LOVE flowers!


To add balance, a flower on the upper right corner.


One thing I learned when working on this, don’t cover the entire box in paper . . . the magnets don’t work . . . thus, the reason for the ribbon tied off to the side.  I needed something to keep it all closed and the metals tags were used to hold the ends of the ribbon in place.

That’s all for today, except to say . . . thanks for stopping by and remember life is short, enjoy the adventures of your day!
