Now don't laugh but this little sweetheart is now gracing our downstairs loo. My Estate Manager recently decided to re-decorate the wee room and after consultation with the Queen of Cream - moi - he has painted it a gorgeous lido blue (Clear Ocean, actually). I wasn't sure to begin with, after all don't small rooms call for light treatment, wouldn't a dark colour make it look even smaller!! But now the job is done I've been won over - it's daring but it's gorgeous - phew : ) However, one thing that is clear is that the old, tired piccies were no longer up to the job. Something new was called for.
So what to do - well, make my own of course, and I had the perfect image for the project. This is one of the stamps I water-coloured last Sunday and I have to admit I just loved colouring in this one. In fact, I have become so attached to it I put off using it to make a card to give away. This image so reminds me of my two children when they were little and cute that I just didn't want to part with it, so making a page to frame was the perfect solution.
This design paper was already in my stash and was a great match with the blue card used for matting. Framed, it's now gracing the wall of the smallest room and looks perfect.
- Cardstock: Reeves Watercolour 190gsm; Stampin' Up smooth card, Marina Mist & Sahara Sand

Now, what excuse can I find to keep the other image I watercoloured last Sunday : )
It's film night in our house, we subscribe to LoveFilm, so I'm away downstairs to watch tonight's offering, a Jodie Foster film I believe.
