Just Because

Excitement, excitement... look what arrived today.... some new Blending Brushes...oh they feel soooo nice, like velvet, different sizes, the small ones are hidden at the back --  but of course I just had to use them straight away

I made another card for the CAS Stencil January challenge - Use a new stencil, seeing as it's their 1st Birthday - a big congrats DT.
Onto white card I 'blended' some DI in three colours along one side and then trimmed the panel to fit a white card.  Then from my stash I found these hibiscus in similar colours so fussy cut them out (they had been coloured with watercolour paints, so I added a bit of depth with coloured pencils). In my stash also was this dark rose coloured clear embossed sentiment, so cut that down to fit with the flowers across the bottom.... a welllahhh we have a card.

Thanks for stopping by my blog ---  have a Happy Day
