Playing with a new stamp ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well, the weekend is nearly here already!  I am playing with an NBUS stamp today, from a challenge win last year, and a new WOW EP too, another challenge win.  I have new stamps and stash waiting to be used in my NBUS box, luckily for me lol. 

I have been very strict and not allowed myself to use the new WOW EPs until I’d used a minimum of half of the old ones.  The issue I have is that my taste has changed and I’m not a glitter fan anymore and I especially dislike glitter in embossing powder.  It was a real happy moment when I realised I have only three partly filled glitter EP tubs and I am daftly very happy about that lol.  So today I have used a new stamp and new EPs and here it is …

An A6 card 
I love this flower!
For some reason I am not too happy with the end result but 
I just had a new idea for using this one pop in my head: hope to share that with you soon!

Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Card Mania Challenge #71 Anniversary
I used another one of my not inked stamps: yay!               
Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Summer Heat: the colours on a hot stormy night!
With Glitter, Embossing Powder &/or Flocking

Once again playing around with the H2O paints and I love my newish opaque WOW EPs a lot and I got to use two colours on this snippet and I used really old PP/DP snippet and a snippet of Crafters Companion A4 Centura Pearl snow white opaque card and my very old H2O paints.
I have candy that is open world wide to new and old Followers.  I would love it if my current Followers were to add their name too, for the post with the link you need to go here.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week  ttfn Karen x

Hi Karen
it is lovely to see you back in the playground with this stunning card. I don't know why you are not happy with it - sadly we are our own worst critics!! I am exactly the same and it is so annoying!!
I love the water colour look background and the pop of colour of the flowers.
