Moments with you...

Eeek!  I can't believe I'm posting another card!  I'm having a nice, long, relaxing weekend and I hope you are, too.  Gosh, I can definitely feel summer coming on!  It's warming up here in Southern California.

Today I used a few different digital images, two from Crissy's Digis at Whimsy Stamps (Can I Kiss You and Sweet Sarah)  and one from Zoe at Make it Crafty (Whimsical Log).  I've also used two rubber sentiments from the Everyday Mini Postage Stamps.  The mini postage stamps were cut out using the Whimsy Mini Postage Die.  Don't the images go so well together?  I kind of botched up the grass, which I'm very unhappy about because it took soooo long to color this.  

Like I mentioned in the previous post, I've been playing around with different watercolor papers.  For this image, I printed it out on Canson Montval watercolor paper.  I think I really like this paper!  Not only is it priced very reasonably, but it's also pretty great to work with.  Like the Lanaquarelle, it keeps the ink wet for longer. I usually actually don't prep the paper before watercoloring on it, but for this paper, it was useful. 

I'm actually not too fond of the card, but eh, might as well post it. This card uses the sketch at Sweet Stop Challenge.
