Best Wishes......

I do love Fuchsias - gorgeous combination of colours that look like bells to me... so of course I love to stamp this one I have in my stash..  This one is actually a snippet that has been waiting a few weeks after I experimented by using watercolour pencils directly onto the wet shadow stamp and then stamping onto white card.... I love how it turned out - I added to bright stamen tips and a little colour to the petals... then die cut it with a stitched rectangle die.  Next I stamped my sentiment on white card and sponged seedless grapes DO around the edge, then cut a circle in my front panel, run a pencil around the inner cut edge, then matched up the flower panel, drew the circle onto it and hand cut the section and around the leaves.  To finish I layered and attached all the elements in place and added a couple of Nuvo drops.  I am playing along with Penny Black Saturday challenge - PBSC March, Anything Goes - option Clean and Simple, also with Penny Black and More ... Monthly challenge March - Going Round in Circles.... the PB stamps I used are Chandelier, and ....every day.
I am also playing at Pixie's Snippets Playground #348.
Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it - happy stamping

  4. Such an elegant and pretty card Robyn, and I have ever tried using watercolour pencils straight to stamp so must give that a try.
