True Art

Dear Ones~
Hope your Sunday is going well. Today I made a card for the Stamp TV Monday Challenge. What's That You Say??? Yep, that's the challenge. Find a quote you love and reflect that quote in a card.

Here is my quote:
"Every artist dips her brush into her own soul, 
and paints her own truth into her pictures." 
Unfortunately, the author is unknown.

Here is my card:
My thought here was to have the pencil drawing the flower. In retrospect I would have done better to use black ink so it looked more like a drawing. Instead I did white heat embossing. But it was great fun to color the image with my watercolors. I also did a wash on the background. 
I have to say this is not the most favorite card I have ever made, but they can't all be perfect.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Sweet Mango and Ivory Card Stock
Strathmore Watercolor Paper
Colorbok Signature Patterned Paper
GKD Sending Love Stamps from the Kit
Majelo Mission Gold Watercolors
GKD White Embossing Powder
Nuvo Crystal Drops

I have a few more blogs to write and then I'm going to play in my craft room. I hope you do something wonderful today. Thanks for stopping by, and as always, I appreciate all your sweet comments.
