I really enjoyed this swap and I'm hooked on watercolors again after a long time of not using them...I actually couldn't find them at first, but there they were tucked away in a drawer that I have no recollection of putting them in...LOL Whew!!! So glad I found them..
I'm going to paint some more flower cards soon... It's my thing right now...It feels so good to be painting again..I hope you like my rose card and that it makes you feel springy...Thanks so much for stopping by...I just love when you come to visit... Happy Easter Everyone!!!! Kathy

I used lots of lovely papers, vintage photos, vintage and new buttons, lace, twine, a paper doily and ribbon...The sewing pieces are made of chipboard and I painted each one with acrylic paint in a cream color with a tiny rose pattern...I distressed the edges with sepia paint for a vintage look and sealed them with a matte finish...
The tags can be displayed individually or in a banner fashion with the pink ribbon...My friend is going to hang them individually in her sewing room..I just so enjoyed this project...I did have one disaster, however..Half way through I knocked over a bottle of gold paint and ruined two of the tags and some of the chipboard pieces..I had to start all over again and it sure took me awhile to get back in the mood...Ugh!!
Well, I would love to know what you think of my latest project...I've missed you all and have neglected my blog for a bit, but I'm back again and working on a card with watercolors this time..I will have it done soon and hope not to knock anything over on it...LOL Thank you so much for visiting my blog and I so appreciate your comments.......Kathy
