Creating in Multiples with Heat Embossed Watercoloring

I love watercoloring in this fashion. That raised edge to keep the color in it's place on a stamped image makes for some super fast coloring.  Well not 16x the speed of real time, but faster than if I colored with alcohol markers and multiple images.  Which means I can craft 4 cards either the same or differently in one mess sess.  Meaning I only had to clean it all up once before I could move onto the next project.  Well if I cleaned it up...which I did, mostly.  I'm blessed my Mojo isn't broken like my thumb...or I'd be incredibly bored.  And more than likely eating my boredom feelings. 

Note: no more fussy cutting for a few more weeks or at least not intentionally.  That was not smart on my part, but what's a girl to do once she starts... abandon ship...I think not.  

And yes I left in my struggles.  I think I watch videos and they always seem flawless or like everything goes great...very rarely does my finished project not go through some sort of revamp or road block or that wasn't lined up quiet right.  And yesterday was one of those days. I had a huge headache, my brain couldn't rest (think 15 squirrels.... at a rave...and trying to keep them in a line),  and I hate being non productive.  I'm so used to getting up at 4am, milking cows, getting home, treadmilling, breakfast, housework, lunch, back to the farm for evening milking, and making supper plus whatever else the day throws at me.  I know fieldwork is just around the corner and that means even longer days, so I'm gonna suck up this create time while I can I guess and make the best of it.  I mean I'm still getting up at 4:20ish every morning to get the boys moving. 

   ( I learned today that I really need to wear my glasses because my stigmatism makes straight cut paper look crooked.  No wonder I always think things are straight and they end up off. LOL.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)
