This is my second attempt at wet water-coloring...
This is my story!
1. LilLuvsStampin told me to get my little hiney (it's big, she has never seen me!) back into my stamp room and try it again....this time follow instructions.
2. I don't think it worked again. What I discovered making this card was that when you don't like what you have created you can pretty much cover up the whole panel by just putting alot of stuff on it.
3. There is one cool thing about this card...the red borders are fabric..it's that piping stuff you buy when you are making pillows. It looks pretty cool in real life.
4. I plan to move on from wet water-coloring.

Teehee! Well, you may not have enjoyed the technique, but it gave you an excuse to use cool ribbon, and even cooler piping. Piping! I really should dig though my sewing room more often to see what I can put on cards.

this is a masterpiece of inventive ideas.....love the ribbon effect in the center.....also love the use of fabric piping...adds a whole other dimension.....and your watercolor work is perfection....the great thing about this technique is that it ISN'T perfect...can't be if you do it right....cuz it is meant to be 'smudged' looking.......so there...that's my story and that's why I love your creation.....
now take your medium hiney (you said it wasn't small) grab a cool drink, a chocolate bar, (or broccoli if that suits ya) and relax.........you deserve a break today.......

Your story is almost as wonderful as your card!! Let me tell you, this card is TDF!! Your idea to use the fabric piping is soooo creative...you sent me into a frinzy looking for scraps in my sewing stuff. I am too old for such excitement, TFS!!
