Hello Friends! Are you ready to explore the world with us this week? I hope so, because that is this week's challenge!
I have always wanted to explore the world...when I was a child I wanted to be an adventurer and find new places on the Earth never before seen by humans! Well, in my lifetime I have seen many new areas of discovery and have been blessed in being able to travel to many wonderful places and meet awesome people.
Are you inspired by travel shows? New discoveries? Do you love to go to new places and have adventures? If so, this challenge is perfect for you!
I started off spritzing a globe die cut...
While that was drying, I worked on the card background...
...and while that dried, I added color to my stamped images (Penny Black). BTW, I stamped the image multiple times with my MISTI, to get the crisp image - sometimes it is difficult to get a good image on watercolor paper, and this solves that problem!
As you can see, I was testing my colors around the edges before I added them. I do think my little explorer might have a sunburn.
I took a piece of burlap textured surface and painted it randomly with Picket Fence and Salty Ocean, then cut it into a circle to go under the world.
Life is not a destination. It's a journey.
oh, how I do believe that! I hope your journey is an awesome one!!
Are you ready to dig into your supplies and start crafting with us this week as we explore the world? Please, come join us in the fun!!
