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!
It's a wonderful whopper - I love watercolouring large flowers
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

Stamping Sensations Challenge August Anything Goes
The Heart Desires Challenge #3 Inspiration Photograph
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
