Happy Birthday

A new month already and some more monthly challenges to be inspired.... my first one is for a left handed person - lol, no really I finished it all off before I realized I'd attached it all to the wrong I'll cut it off and trim it to fit another card base.
I'm playing along with the July CAS Watercolour challenge - 'Splash Watercolouring'.  I created my background strip with Distress Inks - using a loaded paint brush to flick colour blobs of Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber and Twisted Citron onto a plastic sheet and then laying the white card onto this- the bigger blobs spread and joined up but there are lots of small splashes of colour.
Then I stamped my poppy image, watercoloured it with DI and fussy cut it out.  To finish I added a matching card strip and used foam tape to add depth. Finally stamped my sentiment on a die cut stitched oval.
I am also playing along with Watercooler Wednesday WWC177 - Charlotte's Feminine "Anything Goes" challenge.   Thanks for visiting and enjoy your week


  1. I have never tried making splashes with your! I love your splashes behind your beautifully watercolored flowers. TFS Robyn and so pleased you joined us at CAS Watercolour. I think we have all done that at some time during our years of stamping:-)

  2. Oh Robyn, I've done that before but hadn't thought that it might appeal to "lefties". Love that you shared your "oops!" What a wonderful card! I love the background splashes and the way you've shared how you've created them. Keeping them to a single strip towards the left of the card keeps it clean and simple but also adds elegance to your creation. Great colouring on those wonderful blooms! I love poppies and you've brought these to life. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  3. What a lovely splash background, Robyn! The colors are perfect for your gorgeous flowers! How often have I made a "left handed" card! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Watercolour!

  4. LOL!! I have done this before too Robyn. The only difference is I usually make top folding cards, so my cards end up being upside-down! :) I LOVE that splashed strip that you've made. And I like the method you used to create it. Will have to give that a try. Your flowers are gorgeous ... and what patience you have to fussy-cut this intricate image. Beautiful card Robyn. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour! xx

  5. Gorgeous card...fabulous colors!

  6. Beautiful! Love the colours - the background and the flowers. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, all encouragement and inspiration is very welcome. May your day be a happy and extra special one, cheers Robyn
