Watercolored Embrace Life Card


embrace life zig flowers

Yesterday (Thursday) morning, I was procrastinating, avoiding my cleaning chores by “making something to post for tomorrow.”

I embossed the flowers with white (used two masks to not stamp them over each other) onto watercolor paper. And colored in with ZIG Clean Color Brush Markers. Pretty, but the white embossing got lost next to the watercolor paper. Hmmm…how can I fix this? I drew a fine line of blue on the outside of the white embossing, and blended it out with an aquabrush. I really like the definition the blue gives to the flowers.

This is the 14th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. Just thinking that, I go back in time.

Take a moment to remember those who were lost.

Be kind to someone.
