The Paper Players 350:



Hi all!  I will admit that my nose surgery set me back further then I thought.  I have not left the couch since Tuesday.  I am going on day number six - oh dear me!  The only things I have been doing is sleeping, napping, and nibbling on bits of food. The good news is that my nose is feeling better!  I get my "stuffing" (packed gauze) out on Tuesday.


This week at The Paper Players, Nance's SKETCH CHALLENGE is beautiful, I could use it million times over:



I went with more florals... and birthdays... and watercolours.  

For a softer background look, I took a clean water brush and diluted my stamped lines and dots on the paper.  I am quite thrilled how my little floral birthday card turned out :)

Deanne, I could stare at this card for hours--it is STUNNING! Your watercolor skills are amazing and I love the subtle background--especially the combination of stripes and dot. Tickled pink that you like the sketch--you nailed it! Hope you find some nose relief soon--take care of yourself!

Nance is absolutely right Deanne - stunning is what this card most definitely is! You are a true watercolour master; your subtle spots and stripes background is gorgeous and your vibrant flower is beautiful. A truly beautiful card! So pleased you are staying with us for another 6 months and sharing your masterpieces with the team and our participants.
