I’m ok… really I am…


This is one of my favorite stamps from Stampin’ UP! that I got some time ago from my sweet demo Roxi.  I stamped him with Tuxedo Black Memento (but I swear that he ink bled when I added the water for the watercolors… ) on watercolor paper.  Painted the image with Twinkling H2Os (I wish you could see how shimmery it is, btw.  Luminarte is closing so if you want your Twinkling H2Os better order them really really soon!)   I think he is so adorable, and I must say he really summarizes how I feel when I am just “not so ok”.

  1. Wonderful creations!
    I think the Tuxedo is water-based ink ( not sure, but I THINK)……so that is probably why it bled when you colored Mr. Turtle. My ink of choice for watercoloring is Stazon….works wonderfully. I agree, though, he looks just like I feel sometimes! I didn’t realize H2Os were going out…too bad!!! THanks for playing the CTD Challenge and I hope to see your creations again!
