Mondays with The Project Bin - Color Burst!

Good Morning, friends!

*I have two blog posts again this Monday ~
for my Prickley Pear Day #1 post, click here!* 

It's Mondays with Kelly² at The Project Bin stamps blog

Sadly, I wasn't able to get a card made this week,
planned to play with new stamps and get inky this weekend,
but we ended up helping someone move.
I came home with a pounding migraine and felt so beat up,
I took a long bubble bath and went to bed early :/

So, I thunk and thunk some more!
I remembered a card I made back in September (yes! September!)
It never made it to the blog so I am sharing it as inspiration today.
At times, I am in absolute awe and stop and stare
 at the beauty God has given to us ...
from the beautiful marigolds in our front garden,
to the hues of sunsets and sunrises ...
Just glorious!

This card was inspired by Kevin, someone I was blessed to cross paths with on social media.  Here is his blog post, and his original card - isn't it gorgeous!  I watercolored this one on regular white cardstock -
while I usually use a heavy weight watercolor paper.  While it doesn't hold the water quite as well (the paper had some warping), it sure gives it a pop with the color burst and natural blending.  I tilted it to the right and left a bit so the colors could blend naturally.  Swoon ♥
    Thank you, Kevin for inspiring me last Autumn :)

Be sure to stop in the shop and peek at the new stamps and dies,
they are ever so darling!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
