Today's post is a card close to my heart. For almost all of my life I have wanted to travel but was unable to because of various things. Money, time, family. You know how it is right?
But this May I was able to make a dream come true for myself and travel to the Mediterranean. I went to Greece, Italy, Spain and Malta with my sister Sandra..
To say it was a wonderful adventure would be an understatement. lol. I met so many lovely people and ate amazing food and drank the tastiest coffees. The scenery, the weather, the water, these are etched in my memory forever and I am changed in so very many ways.
Maybe later on I will chat more about my adventures but today I wanted to show you a card I am sending to my sister to thank her for going with me.
Here it is -
The card is water colored using Stampin' Up! water colour pencils and a real red marker. (for the Scooter)
I used Bermuda Bay card stock for my base card (I know it looks like Tempting Turquoise but the light here today is really bad for taking pics) I added another layer and used the dynamic embossing folder Layered Leaves for a bit more texture.
I used water colour paper and stamped in Black Archival ink and then water colored my focal piece using an aqua painter and the pencils. To add a little more colour to the scooter I took a Real Red Marker and scribbled a bit on the Stamp case. Then I picked up the colour with the Aqua Painter. I think it turned out really well.
I started looking for a sentiment and found the appropriate one in Watercolor Wings. It says "the little moments with you matter a lot to me." Okay could that be more fitting? Seriously, it just works so very well for how I feel.
