I am playing along with Watercooler Wednesday WWC226 Dawn's Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge and Pixie's Snippets Playground #355 - using your stash. Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it and happy stamping.
Well maybe it's just the right timing for me to be making a 'Blue' themed card for June CAS Watercolour challenge - Something Blue...... because that's just how I'm feeling this weekend with news that my mum has had a fall and broken her leg, she's 88 - thankfully she's still healthy and fit and of a positive nature and will be taking Dr's order to stay off the leg for 6 weeks seriously, and she won't like me for putting her photo in here... Love you Mum and that's why I decided to make this a Get Well card.
I used Loll's Splash watercolour technique for the background and hand painted some flower stems with Twinkling H2Os. I stamped my sentiment to the bottom of one of those leftover frames you create when you die cut a rectangle, then attached blue card to the back of the opening and trimmed my painted panel attaching it to fit leaving a narrow blue frame.
Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it, happy watercolouring.

Using pigment powders with your stencils...
lots of way to combine these - mixed with texture paste, sponged using Versamark,
mixed with water and used as a spray/mist.
Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it, and we'd love for you to join in with the challenge at CAS Stencil....pop over to the blog (here) and check out the DT cards

So today I've discovered I don't have too many 'gift' stamps - one went in the bin it's so old and crumbling...but I do quite like those little HM stamps so this one wrapping his presents is for the June CAS Christmas challenge - Gifts. I stamped the image and used watercolour pencils then sponged green around the edge. To keep the card CAS I embossed a white panel with a favourite EF and die cut a scalloped circle the frame my image. I decided on green and purple because I had this green die cut 'Merry' in my stash and matched it with a stamped 'Christmas'. To finish I assembled the card using foam sheet. Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it - happy stamping.

Twofer Card Challenge - theme is Bees.
For my first panel I painted in the flower centers with some light yellow DI and a bit more green on the stems. Then I flicked some grey spots as it was a bit stark. I framed the panel with orange card and attached some spotty ribbon and bow. I stamped my sentiment and edge the card with yellow ink and lastly stamped two 'bees', coloured them, fussy cut and added some glitter glue to the wings and fixed one in place with foam tape.
Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it - happy card making.
Happy Flowers Stencil
