thanks...

Hey friends!!  Popping in on a very soggy day with a last minute (very last minute, lol!) entry for this month's Essentials by Ellen Pinsights challenge.   I used the current Freshly Made Sketches layout so I will be posting my card there as well.   Between not feeling good and other projects I had to get done first crafting just for fun definitely went by the wayside this month.  Hoping that things are different in November and I can do more crafting for fun.  Anywhoo... for the pinsights challenge I did some simply water coloring on Ranger water color paper (one sheet was watercolored with green and gold paints and the other with brown, yellow and gold paints) and then die cut using the Essentials by Ellen Bold Blossoms dies.  My panel was die cut using the largest AJVD Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop die, the flowers and leaves adhered and then the sentiment from the Essentials by Ellen Fancy Thanks stamp set was stamped in brown ink.  Adhered everything to a Simon Says Stamp fog cardstock base.   Another super simple design.



Thanks for stopping by today... and if you are here in the Pacific Northwest try to stay dry!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI rustic white; SSS fog; Ranger watercolor; Inks:  Memento Rich Cocoa; Paints: Kuretake Gansai Tambi; Stamps:  Essentials by Ellen; Dies:  AJVD and Essentials by Ellen
