Here I am, FINALLY, with my TSC0823 - to do a card using watercoloring, a challenge from sillyfilly!! I had my idea but just could not get the time to get it together until tonight -
I stamped the sandy beach in Stazon black and watercolored using my now retired Watercolor crayons from SU, and an aqua painter. The verse is from ODBD - Ps 139 - "If I settle on the far side of the sea, even there, Your hand will guide me".
I think I spent more time coloring and detailing the seashells that I used for embellishing than I spent doing the whole scene they embellished!! My DH and I used to love to go to the beach and watch the sunrise and sunset there - and since tomorrow would have been our 18th anniversary, that is why I was thinking about doing this beach scene. Hope you like it! Brings back lots of happy memories for me!!
If you want to join us, just put TSC0823 in your keywords!! Thanks for looking!!

Sue your card is so lovely. But first of all I know this is a hard time for you, missing John. This is such a lovely tribute to the love you shared. He was a lucky man to have a woman that loved him like you do. I wish I could reach through the miles and give you a hug.
Great job on your coloring.
