Wishing the best for you

Hey y'all!
Hope all is well?!...

Seems like it has been forever since I last posted a card! Sorry for my absentee...I'm working on getting down a schedule with my kids' homeschooling, as well as all the other daily things. Hopefully, by this next week things will be better. I have figured out that crafting at night seems to be what is working best for me. So that's a start, right?!... ;)

Anyhow, I do have a card to share! Yay! I made this for the current Altenew August Inspiration Challenge.

Awesome inspiration, right?!...As awesome as it is, I sure struggled with using these colors! I know I could have just gone with drawing inspiration from the card but I normally always try to go for the colors along with the card/photo. It certainly pushes me out of my comfort zone but I tend to enjoy it, especially once things start to come together. 

And let me just say photographing blues is a tough least for me that is! lol Seems that reds and blues give me a hard time. Maybe one day I'll master the editing on those specific colors?...Just maybe...But for now, I'll just do the best I can. ;) 

I honestly wanted to do some watercoloring but nothing was working how I wanted it to. And I mean nothing! I watched so many videos and searched up so many tips, I think I just was overwhelmed by it all. Seriously, it seems everyone has their own opinion about things and own ways of doing things. So in return, I'm thinking it's best to just play with things and go with what you're comfortable with?!...And just to have fun. ;) Anyhow, after all that trying and trying and researching, (as you can see) I turned to markers. lol 

Well, that's all for me! 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
