Dig If You Will The Picture

Prince fans, anyone?

I'm a child of the 80s. I love me some Prince.

However, the reason I picked that title is because not only are doves crying today, but I am. I might actually be crying doves. Or doves might be crying about me.

I filmed a half hour long video on the no-line watercolor for my card today, complete with lots of discussion of colors and techniques and how I deal with my watercolor paper, etc. We laughed, we cried, we traveled the world together, you and I.

And then my phone ate the video.

Yep - that's right. POOF. GONE. :(

I guess the bright side is I don't have hours of editing and voiceover to do. So there's that.

So I'm sorry you don't get a video today. I do have a no-line watercolor video coming up in a week or so though - and that one is safe on YouTube already.

So just dig, if you will, the picture... of a beautiful Concord & 9th set I turned into a painting. It was so fun to paint - I love those red berries. I used my ultimate mixing palette I talked about here, Daniel Smith watercolor and my favorite watercolor paper. It's mounted on Whisper White thick, and the sentiment is stamped with Versafine. Did you know that Versafine comes like this? It's my favorite with the MISTI. The image was stamped first in Daffodil Delight before I painted it.

  1. So sorry your phone ate your video!!! Love your card so I know the video would have been fabulous. Patiently waiting for your January post. ;)

  2. I dig the picture! Sorry about the technical difficulties - I would have watched it if it existed. Merry Christmas

  3. You know what they say....Everything happens for a reason. It is just hard to grasp some times the reason.

  4. Lovely card, I like all those colors. I really like the cube versa-fine inks, I have all the colors. Any chance SU will come out with cubes? Can't go back to using felt ink pads, I am spoiled.

  5. This is gorgeous, Lydia! Love the branch, love the beautiful sentiment, love the way you've colored this card. Know what else I'd love to see? I'd love to see animals strike curious poses. Thanks!
