Moxie Fab World’s Wonder of Watercolor

Hello all!  Today I have two cards for you, which I am entering in the Moxie Fab World  Wonder of Watercolor Challenge (http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2013/04/the-wonder-of-watercolor-challenge.html)! I was very excited about doing this challenge as it allowed me to get out my Twinkling H2O’s and play with them!    In my first card – which I call my “empty nester’s card” – I created the background with two stamps and two watercolors.  One thing I really like about the H20’s is that where the color “puddles”, it gives the impression of depth and shading. I love the sentiment as it reflects what we should hold on to as our children go out into the world on their own – our memories of them!

I absolutely love all the shine of Twinkling H2o’s!  Although my fingers were itching to put some embellishments on the card, I really wanted the background paper to shine, so to speak. 🙂

Here is a Sympathy card – also made with Twinkling H2O’s.  I chose this stamp for sympathy as it has the appearance of reverence to me – as if the flowers are bowed in prayer.
