Newton's Birdbath: Distress ink watercolor

 Hello Crafters! 

How are you?
No, really?

I hope that you're wonderful.
It was a rough weekend at work for some of my co-workers and it really has me counting my blessings. 

One of the many blessings God has given me is you. 
Yep, you. 
Stop looking around. 

I am very grateful that God has given me the opportunity to share my art with all of you and that miracle of all miracles you enjoy it. 
Thank you so much for visiting me, for leaving your comments and encouragement, and for supporting me in the one hobby that relieves the majority of my stress. 
You're awesome. 

Alright enough with the feels let's get tot he card ;)



This is another case of "I bought this months ago and shamefully never put any ink on it" I thought Newton's Birdbath was adorable with just the right amount of mischief in it. I  had to buy it.  



I decided to try my hand at watercoloring a background because they are oh so pretty and I knew it would make me terribly uncomfortable. If you're never uncomfortable you never grow. Now, I did console myself with a few copic markers but you can't expect a girl to cannonball :) 

You can watch it all in the video below. If you're new here get the coffee and snacks before you start. 



Even though the flowers didn't come out exactly as I envisioned them I think the adaptation is still pretty. I'll revisit the idea of watercolor flowers on a card I haven't spent quite so much time painting lol


Thank you again for stopping by my little piece of the internet. 
I hope you have a wonderful week!
