The challenge is "Babies" and I designed something a bit different than the usual baby theme:
The background is watercolor, then I stamped the corners. I added a piece of antique gold over netting lace, and then put a tape transfer of a mother and baby over the lace. The transfer is from a 1907 postcard from Holland. The final embellishments were two dragonflies in alternate corners, colored with sharpies and Starlight pens. I'm really happy with the way it turned out! (If you want to see it closer, just click on it.)
On the other postcard (which was not for the challenge), I created a faux Fresco look, again using watercolors and rubber stamps:
I'm pretty pleased with this one too!
Is it hot where you are? It sure has been here, and dry too! I was so hoping that it would rain today, but so far not a drop. My impatiens let me know pretty quickly when they need a drink, and I have to be on top of it to keep the other plants watered. I already lost one plant in a pot with mixed plants in it, so I hope that will be the only one. Ah yes, the middle of summer is here!
