Retirement

I think this may be my FAVOURITE watercolour scene that I have created so far! I am loving this technique and am so excited to try more of it this summer...I've never been much of a painter or into colouring too much, but I am finding using my new Tombow markers with a watercolour brush to be very relaxing. This is definitely a favourite technique or mine right now, so I am linking this card up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of showcasing your favourite technique. I really struggled to pair this scene with papers, and after consulting my aunt who has lots of experience with this, I went with simple solids. Thanks, Auntie Karen!

I made this card for my mom's retirement on the weekend. 35 years of teaching - wow!
