Simple ( and Sleepy) Watercoloring!

Hello friends!
Has it ever happened to you? 
You woke up too early, but you can't quite fall back to sleep right away....
Well this happened to me a few weeks ago during ScrapFest.

Perhaps the nerve was getting to me? Anyhow I had a hard time falling asleep again and decided to do a little coloring. I took out one of the 50 pre-stamped image for ScrapFest and started coloring! 
I thoroughly enjoyed this little coloring exercise since it was so relaxing.


Before you know it, I literally created a card in my sleep!
I went right back to bed and fell asleep after coloring and finished assembling the card after.
So, it all worked out!I used Watercolor Brush Markers on Bristol Paper.
I added the blue shading and even add a bit of blue on the sentiment strip.


edited: the sentiment is from "Delicate Flower Bed". Sorry I forgot to mention that.

Virginia, your card is gorgeous! Love your coloring! Which stamp set is that sentiment from? Thank you!

Good morning, Virginia! Thanks so much for sharing this card with us. I am not a water color-er, so I love to see your awesome creations! Overall, they are so lovely, but the thing I love most about your cards is your attention to detail. I am often surprised to find an item in your products list and then have to go back and see how it has been used ... seemingly so effortless but with the perfect impact!

Yourcard is wonderful!

Beautiful and can't believe you colored this in your sleep.

I really really think this card is so pretty. It amazes me that you got out of bed, coloured it, then went back to bed & slept. If I can't sleep, I lay in bed & fret about it. If I got up to do something, I'd not be able to go to sleep if I went back to bed. I think colouring an image is something I'm going to try though. Thanks!

This is sooooooooo pretty! Good idea, color when one can't sleep. :)

This just proves to me you can do anything...even in your sleep. Simply beautiful coloring and so nice to know you got a great night sleep out of it.

Such a pretty card. I love the addition of the gold accents- metallic thread and glitter drops. These plus the splatters, enamel accents really make this a lovely card.

gorgeous Virginia. The colours look great. I can't say I've got up in the middle of the night and coloured - but if it helped you get back to sleep was worth it for you.
