Watercolored Hello

Good Morning! I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I had a little set back I'm sure it's just from doing to much to fast. I put myself in time out!! lol (wink) so I've been watercoloring the past few days, my way of being creative without over doing it. I sat and colored mainly with watercolored pencils. My favorite stamps to color are all retired. This card uses one of my all time favorite stamps I hope you like it. After I colored it on vanilla card stock I used distress ink all over. I then used sponges and added Choc Chip and Ruby Red around the edges. I also used Itty Bitty background to make the black spots. The main images was lost in this gorgeous dp from daisyd's (Attic Heirlooms)so I added a layer of black cardstock. When I cropped the picture of the card the strip of dp on the left looks uneven but it's straight IRL:)
Here's a picture of the basket up close.
Thanks for stopping by!
