Friday is finally here, yippee!!! I woke up on Wednesday thinking it was Friday, so it's kinda been a long week. The babe is teething which means NO sleep but I think I'm getting used to it after so long and my crafting mojo has been on so I can't complain.
Had I known what a comedy of errors this card would turn out to be I would have taken photos along the way. Originally it was a simple watercolor and when I stamped the sentiment it smeared a bit. The OCD in me can't let it go so to fix that I painted over the background with a sunny yellow acrylic but instead it ended up looking day-glo yellow and clashed horribly. I painted over that with layers of white gesso to tone it down and cover it up and messed Whitney Girl's skirt up in the process. Time for a skirt re-do via paper-piecing. Turns out I like the re-do skirt better and along the way I changed my mind about the original sentiment and used this one from Unity's Itty Bitty Faceless Beauty. I added a sun from the May SMAK in Spiced Marmalade distress ink.
Here is a close up of the background.
