Started this yesterday, finally finished, except for a sentiment.
This is for today's WT-a day off; Joyce Ann's DTGD20; yesterday's WCW-watercoloring on stamps and the sketch.
When one is retired, every day can be a day off. Sometimes one even forgets what day it is. I know, I'm lucky. When I was a kid, on Sundays, we would go for a drive into the country, stop at a few antique shops, especially in the fall. One of my favorite things to do on weekends now is go to an art show, have some apple treats while there; sadly, none of those shows are happening.
WC on stamps is harder than it looks. Debbie makes everything look easy. This stamp set is a solid and outline combo, I did cheat and use the outlines to give them more shape. I did a little painting with a brush onto the paper to try to get more variation of color. The background is many layers of the Distress ink, trying to get sort of a parchment look. I cut the panel in half diagonally and layered on top of some green mirror cs. I cut the leaves out of various scraps of mixed media projects and a piece of coppery paper. Splattering with bronze acrylic finishes it; I think I'll add a sentiment in the upper right eventually.

Your outlines did give more shape. I like your die cut leaves. So pretty. Sometimes, watercolor is easy and sometimes not. It is so fun learning, though. You used some great color with your stamping and made a pretty card. Oh, and I love copper. So glad you joined in the challenge this week.

Your colors are gorgeous, and they worked nicely with the technique. We add what we like on our cards. They are all originals. Glad you are enjoying the Wednesday challenges. I know we all enjoy seeing them. TFS
