My Precious

Yes, I will openly admit that the primary reason I bought this adorable Winnie & Walter stamp set was because of the name. I mean, for reals, you guys! It's called MY PRECIOUS!!! And, yes, for the record, I do say it in my best Gollum voice. Every.single.time.

I stuck with a very simple design for this card. To add the color, in the spirit of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, I tried something I hadn't done before. I placed a sheet of acetate over the image and then used distress markers to scribble color over each gem stone. I then spritzed the acetate with water to activate the inks, flipped it over, and pressed the color onto the paper. I kind of love how it turned out!

I will be honest, while I love the color technique and how that worked out, I do wish I had come up with a better way to place my sentiment on this one. It is just not feeling right. Even now. However, the truth is, I'm okay with that. I tried something new and it worked and that makes me happy!

Have a Happy, folks!
