This was supposed to be a quick card, but nothing went like I thought it should. The image is from Your Next Stamp's Teariffic set. The stack of books has thin lines which make it a challenge to watercolor neatly. I know, watercolor doesn't have to be neat, but it would have been better if I hadn't been so hungry. I kind of had the shakes and didn't figure out until I was assembling the parts and completely misaligned the cover card on the base. AKKKK!
When I first started, I envisioned the stack of books on the plaid paper, representing books on a tablecloth, but it just didn't work.
I also pulled out my little cup of home made enamel dots. Remember a couple of years back when it was a fad to bake up Perler beads to make the dots? Then sequins took over and enamel dots took a back seat to them. In my cup of dots I didn't have 3 matching pink dots. Imagine that!
I can see why sequins are better, since they sparkle and are less likely to mess with the postal machines.
