After a busy week in the garden I have found time to make some more cards, this first one uses the "Country Blooms" stamps from Honey Bee , I have stamped and coloured the image with Zig Markers and then fussy cut out. The large scalloped die is from Spellbinders, I decided a shaped card suited this image, I then adhered with foam tape after adding some splatters with the markers. The Thanks die is by Simon Says, finally I added a few pearls.
I am adding this to the current challenge #77 at the Simon Says Flickr Group.
This second card was a bit of a challenge foe me as I prefer to make cards with flowers on, but I wanted to take part in the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says. I dont have may child related stamps so I found this free Heather Ellis digital image online. I have again coloured with Zig markers and die cut the balloon to make a shaker with glitter paper and sparkles. The sentiment is Simon Says.
Now I am off to the garden again as its a lovely sunny day here.
Have a great Sunday,

I want to improve my water colouring and found time this weekend to sit in my craft room and practice, I was inspired by this card and decided to have a go. I think I need alot more practice yet!!
The stamp set is from Altenew called "Beautiful Day" and I used distress inks as watercolour paints.
The sentiment is by Simon Says.
Next I made a pink version again the sentiment is from Simon Says. I always struggle when adding a sentiment to a card and I am not really happy with this. So with the next card I am leaving it blank and just adding my sentiment on the inside.
For this card I used an old Hero Arts stamp called "Canvas Stripes" for the base, the scalloped die is from Simon Says. This time I stamped and embossed in white two flowers and then fussy cut so I could layer up the flower for more dimension.
I am entering all three cards into the current "Splatter it" challenge over at the Simon Says Wednesday blog and also the Simon Says Flickr Group Challenge #77.
Its set to rain again here so I am off to do some more practicing!

I am keen to improve my watercolouring so decided to ink up this lovely Painted Poppy stamp from Altenew. I used Distress ink and then smooshed with water, I also added some blue and then splattered ink onto the page. The sentiment is from Simon Says.
I am adding this to this weeks Wednesday challenge at Simon Says "Splatter It"
The weather has improved a lot here today, no rain and the sun is out, time for a spot of gardening. Enjoy your week.

The weather here has been awful today, heavy rain all day and its cold for the time of year. Its a perfect day to get in my craft room and have a play, this is the card I have just finished. I have used watercolour paper and the Painted Flower stamps from Altenew. I have stamped with Distress inks and then using water and a brush just smooshed the colours around. The sentiment is from Die-Namics.
Had fun with this one, I do like playing with watercolours!
I am adding this to the August challenge at Die Cut Divas "Anything Goes" .
