MY WATERCOLOR FLOWERBOX…..
The SUO challenge for this week is Banners, Banners. :) I am so not the banner girl. Or so I think. I actually had a lot of fun making this card. But I still say I am so not the banner girl. I hate to say it but I live in a box. It's the "watercolor flower box". It's what I do best, what I love best, and what I stick to when given the choice. So the SUO challenge team has been a swell place for me to hang out for these last few years….always making me S-T-R-E-T-C-H…..and try things I am not naturally drawn to. I am not naturally drawn to just about ANYTHING about this card. These colors make my lips freeze a little…..bright orange, yellow…yikes….but hey - I figure if you're being stretched you may as well go for broke. :) I guess in the end I kinda actually like this card. Every once in a while it's nice to see I can do something besides watercolor flowers. :) So easy to go back and back to what you do best and what is familiar to you. When I first saw this stamp set I was like, hmmmm…….and now I love it!! If I keep my mind OPEN to new things, I do lots better with them. Anybody else feel stuck in a rut sometimes??? Well make a banner card with bold lip freezing color and jump right out of that box!! Come on, you can do it, go make a banner card! ;) Happy Tuesday!! Until next time……Karen
