I have had this image colored and sitting on my desk for weeks. I just never quite got around to using it. It fits the sketch perfectly!
I don't use watercolor crayons very often and I don't know why. I always bring them out for fall leaves and I love the look. The colors are quite rich - I simply drew a crayon line with various colors around the inside edge of the stamp. Then I used a aquabrush to apply water and move the pigment around.
Also wanted to share a typical scene at my house. This is my teenager messing with my poor cat. The cat was sleeping so soundly, he stayed with the dishes on him for half an hour!! Living in a household of boys and men is not always easy!
- Stamps: sentiment from Papertrey's Flower Fusion, leaf stamp unknown - looks like Stampendous? (FYI: I take all of my rubber off the wood, then I use Aleene's Tack It Over and Over on the back so they cling to acrylic blocks. I stamp each stamp into a three-ring binder and include the brand name - this stamp is stamped but I didn't include a brand)
