my favourite place

Oh man, I just love when I have the time/energy to make a card!  This one is for Virginia's clean and simple challenge.  You know I'm a clean and simple gal, so this one was right up my alley!





A while ago I stumbled upon a cool embossing folder- a map of the world.  I bought it, stashed it away, and then forgot about it until last night! Once my watercolor paper was all embossed, it was easy to just paint each of the continents.  I let my watercolor pool up and play around on the surface of the paper so that when it dried I'd have those cool water marks. I just love how that looks!

My sentiment is from Altenew- some folks have asked why we spelled "favourite" with a "u." Well, the rest of the stamp set includes the Sydney skyline, and that's how they spell it in Australia!   Other countries spell it that way too, and I hope they appreciate that they finally have a sentiment without the American spelling :)

edited to add:  After I posted this, I thought my card looked a bit familiar. Then I remembered Miriam's awesome card here.  I didn't CASE her intentionally, but I guess it just kind of happened!  Hope you don't mind, Miriam!

  9. Holy cow. This is a stunner! Please tell me you plan on making this into a stamp? There is no way I would ever be able to free hand draw or paint like this. I need cheats. ;)))
