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!
Das hast Du Dir aber auch verdient - Deine Karten sind einfach klasse!
I love everything about this card!:)

Deine Karte ist ein richtiger Hingucker und du hast gut daran getan, noch ein paar Highlights auf die Tropfen zu setzen. Sie sehen verblüffend echt aus und es kommt noch mehr Tiefe ins Bild!!
Ich bin wirklich tief beeindruckt von dieser Karte!
Ach ja, ich hab mir den Blog angeguckt und ich dein Portrait gesehen! Siehst sehr sympathisch aus und jetzt habe ich endlich ein Bild vor Augen, wenn ich dir schreibe ;-)
The card you've created is awesome! Good DT member job!
