Unusually for me I didn't get round to making a card for yesterday's new challenge over at LIM which is 'Watercolour'. However, after going to bed last night and still being awake at 3 a.m, I decided I might just as well get up and what else can you do at that time of the morning other than craft??
I don't have many stamp sets that lend themselves to watercolouring but I thought this flower, from Flower Shop, would fit the bill quite nicely. I started by stamping a flower onto Whisper White using the new In Colour Blackberry Bliss, added a post-it mask before adding another flower then set to with my Aqua Painter. I began by blending the ink already stamped then added a little more ink to give more depth. I then repeated this on a scrap of Whisper White and punched this flower out with the Pansy Punch. The stripey image from Gorgeous Grunge was stamped in Crumb Cake and the sentiment from Four You in Blackberry Bliss before matting onto Crumb Cake cardstock and then onto a card blank. The punched flower was added using dimensionals and a few Basic Pearls added to the centre.
I hope you have a lovely Sunday whatever you're doing. For me it's ironing, shopping, visiting Mum then getting ready for a bit of a hectic week at work - and it's another weekend over!!!
Oh dear I nearly forgot to say a big thank you to the ladies at LIM for choosing one of my cards to showcase this week and also to all the people who have left me such lovely comments - I really do appreciate it x
