Thank You, Paper Crafts Blog Hop

Today, a large group of paper crafters are expressing our thanks to our beloved magazine, Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking, that will be closing its doors early next year. I have had the honor to have several projects published through their beautiful magazines over the years. It's hard to believe that it will be no more.

Thank You, Paper Crafts Magazine and Staff. You have been my source of inspiration ever since I started paper crafting a few years ago. You have made my day many times when I received the acceptance emails from Susan that my projects would be published by you. You will surely be missed. My prayers are with you as you seek new adventures and adjust to life apart from our beloved PC Mags.

If you came from Heather's blog, then you're in the right spot.  My card today is pretty easy with a simple sentiment. I free hand painted the tree with watercolors. The sentiment is from Penny Black Sunny Hello. The panel was attached using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Photo Corners.

To make the tree, I first loaded my brush with watercolor paint, then flicked it all over the paper with my fingers. I then smeared more water on the drops. When that dried, I painted the trunk and branches. Finally, I added the blue background and grass.

Your next stop is CLEARSNAP, makers of some of my favorite inks. Happy hopping!
