Hello Friends, Happy Summer Vacation to me! I hope it doesn’t go as fast as I think it will, since summer has been shortened by two weeks this year. I will do my best to enjoy all that I am so very fortunate enough to get! Today over at Seize the Birthday, it’s time for an Anything Goes challenge! I was given 3 boxes of stamp supplies from a friend of mine the other day and inside one of the boxes was a brand new set of watercolored pencils that were never used. I so enjoyed coloring my last post, so I thought I would give it another go, but this time with watercolors. This stamp set from Crafter’s Companions was something I have had on my desk in hopes to color someday and I finally got the chance. First, I heat embossed this adorable little elephant with white embossing powder, laid down some color with the pencil, and then came back with a very small paintbrush and water. As you can tell by the closeup photo below, this was not an easy task. So many little details. Hubby chimed in his two cents when I was done and said,” You are just like my students, afraid to add to much color.” I told him I wanted a pastel look, however I do wish my elephant could have been a little darker. I went over her at least three times, but was so afraid to bring out the black. I had a difficult time finishing up my card as my house is in disarray, especially my studio. The windows are being replaced in the entire house, so things had to be moved. Then after the blinds and valances were taken down, the company postponed us for a week. Grrrrrrr! Anyhoo, the card got finished! Not how I had envisioned, but that’s okay. See you soon, Nanc’

Lots of itty bitty pieces to color there, Nancy, but you did a fabulous job. How wonderful to get a bunch of supplies from a friend.
