Day 60 - What?! . . .

. . . Hmmm, what?! - The challenge to use 'What' - Day 60 was NOT really a challenge for me. When I saw the post - I knew EXACTLY what stamp I was going to use. Now, figuring out WHAT to do with the stamp was a little more challenging. So, I asked my oldest daughter (nearly 17) what she thinks of 'art-wise' when I use the word - 'what. . .'? Her thinking was nearly what I had in mind. Lot's of color - randomly thrown together - just: WHATEVER. This was really a fun card to make - of course, I played with ink for awhile before settling down and getting to the task of putting the card together. More on that in another post later. My BG is watercolor paper with random inks and flowers from my $5 find at the garage sale - I mounted this on Taken with Teal from SU. I had played with flowers yesterday - some of you will remember - so I added a bit of broken china distress ink to my flower and used stream alcohol ink to color the clear jewel for the center of the flower. I scrunched up ribbon to place behind the flower - I like this technique - it gives depth to the flower. I had fun leading up to putting this card together - backgrounds are SO fun to make and there are so MANY possibilities. Will share that later - as I have to run off to work today. I traded with a co-worker, which worked out fabulously as now I will be able to work at the Scrapbook Expo on Friday - ALL Day!! Fun! Fun!
Thanks for visiting in the spa today!! ~~Paula~~
