Happy Lenten season if you observe! :)
I've made a deeply personal decision to focus on
being formed by God's mercy and grace
and I've already seeing it work - He is good!
I'll be back to blogging and visiting regularly now as
I had to take a step back (or 5) and refocus
my physical and spiritual energy and get back to my present moment :)
But I'm here!
Today's card is for a card challenge I call Ready, Set, Go!
set a theme for each other with a challenge that's e.x.t.r.e.m.e!
Barb is up this month and this is her February challenge:
Our posting date is February 17th, the first day of lent in 2021 and National RAK Day. During Lent, many people traditionally give up items—chocolate, coffee, alcohol, etc. Me—I kiddingly say I give up Lobster and drinking water from the outside water spigot-ha! So, for our challenge in February, you need to “give up” an item you almost always use or have on a card. Do you usually color with Copics—not this month. How about patterned paper for a background layer—not this time. So—you need to give up something on your card. Then, you are being asked to send your card as a RAK—a card to a random person in your life who would not be expecting it. Please pick someone who has not gotten a card from you in the past that is deserving of happy mail. Maybe a not-so-close-to-you family member from afar you are thinking of. Or, an acquaintance on SCS or another forum that comment on your cards often and you happen to have their address. Put a smile on the face of someone you do not know very well. Make the RAK count! Ready. Set? Go!
Because I'm just getting back into making cards,
I took the easy way out and didn't color with my copics
which I almost always use to color.
There are no markers on this one anywhere!
I used my watercolor brush markers and blended colors in a palette
for teal, dark blue, purple.
Using my Fluttering Friends stamp set from MFT Stamps,
I stamped directly onto the dried watercolor panels and die cut them.
The Spiffy Speckles paper is from Lawn Fawn and I used
my Lawn Fawn stiched rectangle dies and kept it pretty clean/simple!
Last, I added the matching sentiment from the set.
And that's my card!
Thanks for stopping by!
