The current Color Trend Challenge from Essentials by Ellen showcases the color of the year, Ultra Violet, along with sky blue, several greens and a couple of mustard/golden brown shades.
I got out my Kuretake water colors to use not because I enjoy them, but because I want to improve my water coloring skills. I find it difficult and frustrating, but I don't want to give up!
The Mondo Sakura stamp designed by Julie Ebersole for EBE is the star of my card, I used it for last month's Color Trend Challenge too. This time I made a square birthday card using about 3/4 of the image and turned it upside down. I'm happy with the way it turned out. The very dear friend I made it for is always so appreciate of my handmade cards, and I think she will like it too.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look, and I appreciate any comments you care to leave. Have a great day.
