Inspired by #114

Have you seen the photo inspiration at Inspired By?  It reminds me of the wonderful cubbies Dawn McVey decorates at her home.  You may want to check them out @dawnsing on Instagram.  I only picked one of the cubbies to base my card on. 
See the second one down on the left.  That light green pitcher/watering can?  Here's what I did with that.
The green of the actual card is much lighter and more like the photo.  I stamped and masked the PB lily before using Altenew watercolors for the background.  After removing the mask, I watercolored the leaves and stem and then used PolyChromos pencils on the center of the flower and for shading. I stamped the sentiment from Jillian Vance and cut the panel with my NBUS rounded rectangles from Hero Arts. That was almost a disaster!  Evidently there was some brown ink on the cutting plate that remained from a previous pass through.  I thought I had destroyed all my work but then decided it gave the card a more rustic look like an old tin watering can would have.  That's making lemonade. ;)

Thanks for dropping by today.  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.


  1. What a stunning card, Bobby ... to paraphrase the sentiment ... glorious indeed! You used the almost-disaster to such wonderful advantage, it looks perfect! Hugs, Anita :)

  2. Nothing disastrous here, just lots of pretty!

  3. I don't see anything disastrous here either Bobby, but I do see one stunning's absolutely GORGEOUS!! LOVE all the shading you did with the Polychromos lovely!! :0)
