I am so excited to announce that I am now part of the Simply Create Too Design Team!
I could not tell anybody about this until today - the day of the official new design team member announcement!
I am very proud to be chosen into this fantastic team. I was a little nervous at first, but everybody has been so welcoming and nice and has put me at ease.
I made this card for the first challenge - it is "Anything Goes" - actually my favorite type of challenge. Although it is a little different if you know that you are supposed to be the "inspiration". Usually if I see a challenge like that I just participate with whatever I have.....
I decided to use my all time favorite stamp for this occasion - the famous water droplet stamp by Ryn Tanaka
I used distress inks for a watercolor background. The Japanese maple leaves are by Stamp Camp and the sentiment is from Heidi Grace Designs by Fiskars.
I put little enamel dots on the drops and went over every drop to take away some of the underlying color to make them more 3-D. I saw that somewhere on Ryn's facebook site. This make a huge difference and it shows better in the detail pics than in the picture of the entire card.
I have some more Ryn cards coming up - she has created different water drop stamps and I immediately ordered some - although I really should have ordered ALL of them..... Next time I won't make that mistake again....
As things go - I may as well participate in the Moxie Fab watercolor challenge with this card.
I am glad I can share my joy with you - have a great day and thank you all for you kind comments!
