Life ~ DS4J Mid Challenge Reminder

Hi everyone! I've been silence the past one week spending some days with families; the first few days with my father-in-law at his house and the next few days with my mother at my own house. It's always wonderful to be with our dear ones isn't it? Life is back to normal since Mom went back last Saturday; pretty quiet without her because we did lots of talking during her waking hours. So now is time to 'talk' to my blogger friends, lol. 

Sharing with you today is a step card of an artist and her painting. I visualize that is me and the painting is obviously by me, lol. I have used a beautiful image Misteri Artist drawn by Jen Lee. Click here to get her. She is also available in colored form (click here)

I am back to remind you that our talented DigiStamps4Joy dt member Pam Ramesh is hosting her challenge this fortnight. She is challenging everyone to do embossing: dry or wet or you can do both if you like. Please take a peek at DS4J blog and may you get some inspirations from my fellow design team B members. You have until October 29 to link up your entry. 
 Supplies: DS4J digi image, Tattered Angel Glimer Mist, Tim Holtz distress marker, Kaisercraft brown ink pad, Pop Artz patterned paper, watercolor, metals and sentiment from Ginger's House  

 I did exactly what the sentiment said. I throw my paint onto the dry embossed 'canvas' (actually  an acid free 200 gm drawing block paper so to speak), lol. I used an embossing tool of heart shape to emboss the little piece of paper.  
 I enjoyed making this card and it simply reminds me to get back to painting again. I can't remember when was the last time I paint but it's been many many moons ago.
