All of sudden ,I was feeling like making a card this morning. (breakfast dishes were still in the sink.) I grab a piece of watercolor paper and played watercolor paint.

Even though I had to stop at each process and took a quick shot, 30minutes were more than enough. If you have a urgent occasion to drop a line, I think my watercolor card idea is helpful.     Step1.

    I am having fun playing with watercolor lately. Just a simple touch of red and green watercolors on white paper gives an awesome result. I try to avoid using special stamper’s supplies, such as embossing powder, heat tool and a watermark ink pad. Instead, I borrowed a white crayon from my daughter’s pencil case.
