    The Flower Challenge | reminder March 2019

    Hi friends Here is my reminder to you to join us at The Flower Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes, nice and easy. For my card I was inspired by a beautiful scarf that is my MILs: I used a new waffle flower bouquet stamp and coloured it with my zig watercolour brushes and attached to a black card base with gold and white paint splatters. The happy anniversary heat embossed stamp is my favourite from Heffy Doodle. I do hope you will join us and check out the inspiration from the design team.

My card today features distress oxide ink blending to create a rainbow background using Winnie and Walters madison stencil.

The home word is covered in Nuvo moonstone glimmer paste. I added a bird from Pinkfresh Studio coloured in rainbow…

    Trio of Hello Cards | Winnie and Walter

    Hiya I have never created duplicate cards before but the current Winnie and Walter Challenge with Heather to create a set of cards pushes me out my comfort zone. I used my Misti and leaf images from Addies Garden to create three identical backgrounds. I then coloured them all messily with peerless watercolours. Next I die cut the Winnie and Walter big hello die from black and white cardstock and stacked them for dimension. The little sentiments where from Simon Says Stamp You + Me. Hope you like them!

    Winnie and Walter | rainbow blooms

    Hiya Here’s another card for the ongoing Winnie and Walter challenges to celebrate 5 years. Rosali has been encouraging us all month to try different methods of masking. This one is very simple, I took a flower from Addies Garden stamp set and stamped and masked it five times across my watercolour card front. Next I used distress oxide and distress inks to watercolour my background. I coloured the flower centres with zigs in matching colours and added some Lucy’s jewels. The panel is on a side folding A6 card base. I am entering this into: Five Challenge with Shay (five flowers and five distress inks used) Rosali week 3:…
