Sketch card #1 of 2 ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. Last week I saw a sketch and a photograph at a couple of the challenges I like to enter and luckily for me the next day a stamp set I’d ordered arrived and I was desperate to play with the new stamps so I stamped and coloured the image on Friday afternoon lol! So here is my card …
An A6 Kraft, White & Pink card!
I am obsessed with this flower stamp now lol!
It's a wonderful whopper - I love watercolouring large flowers!
Had to add some pink splatters and that beautiful word die
Let's say this isn't the last time you will be seeing this stamp!
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Pixie’s Snippets Playground #241: the strips of paper & the die cut
Share Joy Challenge #47 Sketch &/or Tic Tac Toe:
I followed the sketch

My use of Kraft card is from the wooden floor and the pink from the succulents
Two months ago I won the random voucher prize from Spectrum Noir’s Facebook Challenge, and I was a very happy bunny yipee! I hummed and hawed for a bit before finally choosing two more sets of the Spectrum Noir AquaTints (Bright & Beautiful and Pastels). I didn’t plan to purchase or pick them because I’d assumed they were pastel or bright versions of the colours in the other sets that I have. Then I watched one of Sheena’s You Tube videos and learnt that they are different colours/shades/tones and so I had to have them and so went that voucher. I am so very happy I did! The Pastel set is beautiful, so pretty and very delicate. The Bright & Beautiful set just zings and pops with lovely vibrant colours. I guess I am going to be watercolouring for a while lol! I am so happy and so very grateful for any challenge prizes I am lucky enough to win: so a huge ginormous thank you to every single challenge and for all the hard work that you do!
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
