Watercolor while waiting

My upline Jean once mentioned how you could get some cardmaking done while waiting in the doctor's office or any of a number of places where you are a captive audience. Stamp a design ahead of time. Then take along coloring pencils and a blender pen.

My Dad had surgery earlier in the week (and is doing fine). Before going to the hospital, I stamped out a few flowers from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set on water color paper. I packed those, two tins of SU watercolor crayons, some scrap paper, and a couple of blender pens in a plastic paper storage envelope and tucked it all in my tote bag. Coloring in the flowers was a great way to make productive a little of the many hours we spent waiting. (BTW, the only good thing about being the last family still left in the waiting room at the end of the day is you get control of the TV.)
I finished the card above at home today. Next TIPsy Tuesday I'll share more of these designs and how to do the masking that allowed some flowers to be 'on top' of others.

Ingredients: Stamp Sets: Fifth Avenue Floral, Kind and Caring Thoughts for greeting.
Watercolor crayons: Stampin' Up! Soft Subtles and Rich Regals
Paper and ribbon are from unknown sources.
