COPICS Die Cutting Techniques Water Coloring

Watercolored background XOXO


Happy Monday to you all! This is my last week in my home. Next week, the packing and chaos begins… The challenge over at the Lawnscaping Challenge blog is based on an inspiration board (challenge badge at the end of this post)! I took inspiration from the colors and the polka dots…. 🙂 I love me some dots!

I created the background with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  I just scribbled on some colors and blending them with a waterbrush.  The XOXO die is awesome isn’t it. I worked nicely for the little hedgehog to rest on. I sprinkled on some hearts as a finishing touch using some of the small hearts from the Stitched Journaling Card die set. And as a finishing touch, a coating of glitter with the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay pen and some Glossy Accents over the hearts.


I hope that you will scoot on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge and play along! There is a close up shot of the Mood Board if you want to take a closer look.  The fabulous ELLEN HUTSON is sponsoring this challenge! One lucky winner will win a $25 shopping spree to the store!!!!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!

    That is so cute!!! Good luck with your packing and getting reading to move. Good luck with your new adventure. I will miss your smiling face and voice while you are going through this process. May God bless you and the rest of your family.

  3. Such a sweet card, Laurel.
    Good luck with the move and settling in your new home and surroundings. I know from your earlier posts that you dread leaving your home town, but I know you’ll be fine. You’re not the type to go hiding in your closet (except for doing voice-overs lol), so I’m pretty convinced you’ll manage to make new friends in no time. Of course, having young children also helps to get to know other people.

    Hi Laurel ~ This card is oh, so precious!! The xoxo is perfect with that adorable hedgehog. I have no doubt you’ll be fine once this move is “over” and done with so that you get settle into some kind of normalcy. You are a strong woman with strong convictions and passions and I have faith that this next journey will bring excitement as you encounter these new excursions. I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, my friend. Be well, be strong and I look forward to hearing all about your new expedition. ~HUGS~
