A Warm and Rainy Day.....and a Card


Well they weren’t kidding when they said it was going to rain today – rain it did, all day and still raining. Walking outside was not going to happen today so we made ourselves go to the arena and walked around there for 16 laps – which is 2 miles. My daughter gave Joe a pedometer last year for Christmas and we often wondered how accurate it was. We always felt like we walked more than it registered. So today he wore the pedometer and sure enough, we walked 2 miles and it registered 1.2 miles. Yikes! That is way off. I’ve emailed the company asking how to reset it but no reply yet.

Today’s card is yet another, water coloured Christmas card.
 

The bottom was covered with a piece of torn copy paper to keep it white. Once again the background was wet with a brush and then I spread water colour paints over the wet area and let them blend together. Once it was dry I splattered white acrylic paint all over it. This time I used the same purple ink that the trees (Inkadinkado) were stamped in (stamped twice right beside each other so it fit the entire card) to blend into the snow bank to look like shadows. Then I used light blue paint to paint in some snow drifts. The sentiment is from HOTP and it was stamped in the same purple ink. Before gluing it to the card base three strands of glitter ribbon was wrapped around the card and a gem was added where they cross.

That’s all for a very wet, but warm, Friday, November-27-15. Have a great weekend everyone.

Cheers

Violet
