Friends are like Stars


It's finally here!  Happy Friday!

I'm getting ready for a full weekend of stamping.  In a few hours I'll be meeting up with Kristie near Boston.   I've been looking forward to this for a long time :)  I heard a rumor that we are meeting up with Suzanne from Freshly Noted for dinner.  I can't wait to meet her too!  Then Elsa and Michelle join us Saturday.  It's going to be a great weekend!

Before I hit the road, I wanted to share my card for this weeks Watercolor Challenge at StampNation.

To make my card I first heart embossed my sentiment on Watercolor paper, then colored over it with Distress Markers.  To make the colors bleed and blend I used water and my aquapainter.  I have better luck dipping my aquapainter in water rather than filling it, I seem to have better control that way!  Lastly I wiped the excess ink off of my sentiment. 

Easy, peasy!

Have a fabulous weekend, thanks for stopping by!
