One More Morning With You...and Jessica!

Good morning!!  Jessica here for my final guest design post for So Suzy Stamps!  A BIG thanks to Suzy and the So Suzy Stamps design team for being so welcoming and encouraging this month!  These ladies ROCK and I am honored to have had the opportunity to guest-design!  




For my last card I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone.  No-line watercoloring is a technique that always intrigues me...However I struggle with it because I am a fairly impatient person and I have ruined many projects by not allowing them to dry fully. ;) But when I saw the adorable Two Cats in a Tree stamp I decided to give it a try!  I freehand painted the sunrise background using a waterbrush and watercolor sample dots.  Since Suzy is from New Mexico (and there's no way I could freehand paint a forest) I decided to google 'New Mexico sunrise' and used some of the desert mountains photographs as inspiration!  Once the background was totally dry I stamped the cats with Antique Linen distress ink and then used the same sample dots and a waterbrush to paint over the lines of the stamp.  I let it dry overnight and then added the sentiment from the Happiness is... series and a black frame that I colored with a clear sparkle.  Please visit my blog for more details on how I created my card and a closer look at the stamp!  Again, many thanks to Suzy for having me this month!!
