Went to a wonderful watercolor workshop 
Did several projects shown here
First above using the paint pods simply washed two cards one in red
 one in green
From the red we die cut poppies  and hearts and
from the green the stem

Then we did the "running or drip'' background to adhere the flower on
The hearts (which I can't move up from the bottom) are on a separate card.

 Next we used distress inks on an acetate and smooched the card stock
we practiced first then did it on a card that had already the heart sticker

Now on to markers  The image is embossed
we were shown to place the color to the center a drag it with a water brush
This part I had no problem with
Then she made us splatter over the finished pieced
I should not have done that step

SFF One Layer Theme Snow

                                          One layer is easy "snow" not so much

                                             The TT shows what is expected
                                            So I used MFP BIG Trees stamp set
                                           Leaving lots of open background I
                                          I colored only a small portion of the sky
                                         I used my Misti ( fast becoming a friend)
                                            Put the tree in inked the left with green
                                                           Stamped  and cleaned
                                      Inked the right with black and stamped again
                                                                 It is perfect
                                                  I then need the required snow
                                     I used Enamel Accent and it turned out great
                                                         Come play with us
