Fusion: Enough

A simple sentiment today for all of us as we navigate these uncertain times.  I am hoping to see some light at the end of the tunnel as our county slowly starts to reopen more businesses after a two month shutdown.  Anyone else need a haircut besides me?  I might have to go see if Miss Emma can trim hair since she helped her mom out this week with some root touch ups!

In the meantime I did a bit of colorblocking too. I colorblocked the background of my card by using actual clear stamping blocks.  First I stamped the block on the ink pad. Then I spritzed it with water before stamping on the paper.  Easy technique and I love how texture of the watercolor paper shows through.  

I used the photo and the sketch as my inspiration for today's card.  Hope you join us at Fusion!

Such a pretty card! Fantastic background! I'm about ready to hand the scissors over to my kids for my hair crazy that we haven't been able to get a hair cut since early March and we've got at least another month to wait here.

Tom takes care of my stick-straight blunt cut for me, but I sure could use Emma's new skills right now!
Fabulous color blocking, and beautiful words today!

Your color blocking is so striking and I love your design, Linda! Another fabulous take on the challenge!
Emma is really concentrating on her skills in this photo...Bless her heart! I'll bet she did a great job, too :)

Love this Linda - the colour blocking is another technique to use with this stamp set! Miss Emma is clearly a dab hand at the hairdressing thing! I must say, I was surprised to find I'm pretty good at it too, having bought a trimmer and some hairdressing scissors and cut both the kids and my husband's hair during this time, and no major disasters. Shame the same could not be said of my own hair, which looks dire - but I can't cut my own and don't trust any of them in reverse to do it for me, even though they all seem pretty keen to have a go!!
