Dynamite with a laser beam, guaranteed to blow your mind anytime...

Happy Friday everybody!! Is it just me or is the the looooooooooooooooooooongest week EVER? Maybe it's just me. But time has seemed to just crawl. I'm ready for the weekend!

I have another Verve card to share with you today. I got super stumped earlier in the week where all I could do was stamp images and color them. Even that wasn't turning out right. Usually when that happens I just quit, but I was DETERMINED!! Kind of like with the tag on the fairy card. {insert determined face, usually with tongue sticking out to help}

So I turned to Julee's Mojo Monday sketch challenge for some help. And look! I think it worked!

Ok, so I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I stamped the image from the Thankful Blossoms set with Brilliance Graphite Black on watercolor paper and then colored them with Copic markers. I love the way Copics blend on watercolor paper! My colors were inspired by the Tres Jolie paper by My Mind's Eye, which while trying to link, I have sadly discovered is ALL GONE!! Sad.

My favorite part of this set, though, is this sentiment. I love it because it can be used for so many different types of cards. It could be a thank-you, a congratulations, thinking of you, encouragement, or whatever else you can think of! And yall know I'm a sucker for that scripty font. *wink*

Well that's enough blabbering for one day I think. Have a fabulous and AMAZING weekend!!

Yep, definitely worked. And I love your colors. I've been wondering how the copics would do on watercolor paper. Good to know.
