Watercolour and Gold W&W #6 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has started well.  I promise that the next few projects will not be me just using my new stash, lol, I apologise if I have bored you by using the same stencil on multiple posts.  I’ve another one to share today and then I will try and space them out a bit more.  So here is today’s card …

Back to A6
A final look

I am finding it so funny that I have been getting much inkier and using paint on most of my experiments yet when I want to create a card it has to be clean, as in no mucky prints or splodges unless I want them to have that.  This card had to be one layer and clean and simple and that’s still a struggle.  It’s because I am a klutz.  I struggle to keep the background clean with no paint or ink splattered.  I have to say though I am very proud of this one and the pink and white one I created recently, because they don’t have any paint drips and the sequins on today’s card are purely decorative lol!

As per my other posts where I’ve used Winnie and Walter products today’s card was created with the flower from the stencil set.  I am planning on finishing several projects and in between those drying I’ll play with the stamps that come with this huge set because those images are why I had to have these stamps: you and I need to be a little patient lol!

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 soon ttfn Karen x

First of all many thanks for you visit and lovely comments Karen, I really do appreciate it.

You mentioned Aqua Tints, these are one medium I have not succumbed to - yet, but my reserve is weakening when I see what you do with them.

I know exactly what you mean about wanting to switch to nice clean lines for some pieces of work, I think that's what makes it all such fun. The Rose in this card is lovely and the little scattered pearls all add to the elegance.

I keep reading about Winnie and Walter this week but have to confess I had never heard of them before so much go check them out.
