send a lifeboat...

sigh. Just as one child is starting to feel better, the youngest gets sick. Welcome to flu season and many sleepless nights.

Todays card is from the cute little love boat in the Lizzie Anne Designs Things that Go set. I'm just going to pretend its a life boat coming to rescue me from the sickies, lol! I stamped the boat out twice on watercolor papers. While coloring in my image, I scratched lines on the boat with the tip of a needle. The paints will wick into the scratch marks leaving wood grain. Kinda cool, huh? I cut out the boat and adhered it to the other watercolored image with pop dots.
