I had an arty day on Saturday. Oh what fun it was!
I really want to be able to have an arty most every day.
 Too bad there's a thing called work, huh?

So I started my day by water coloring some backgrounds. I made a bunch, and I made a bunch of cards too. I needed a  card to send to someone I haven't heard from in literally years, and since I was going to make one, I might as well make a bunch. Not all the same, but using the same techniques. Starting with water coloring. 
And then embossing over the background.
Images I used here are from Chocolate Baroque.
The butterfly is painted with Dylusions Spray Inks in a water brush.
I love putting very bright colored images on white. It makes them really pop.
Black has the same effect which is why I used a black Sharpie to outline the block.
Popping is a great thing.
Don't you think?

So we're starting another work week. 
Hope its not as cold as last week. Hope there's no snow either. Or ice.
In fact I hope its sunny and warm and just like spring.
I wish!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

The card is really nice! I love that big blast of bright color with the white and black words and the pop of the butterfly is icing on the card cake. It's a beauty!
