Sketch card #2 of 2 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend was fabulous!  I hope your week has started well too.  I have the second card I created because of a sketch and new stamps and here it is …

Another A6 card using the smaller two flowers this time
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

 Share Joy Challenge #47 I used the sketch and

the strips of patterned paper and the die cuts

I knew as soon as I saw this stamp set from Leonie that it was the first of her designs I was going to purchase.  I love to watercolouring because it enables me to stop worrying, to stop stressing and it helps me cope better if my back pain is bad enough that I can’t craft because I can envisage myself watercolouring and daftly that in itself calms and relaxes me.  When I can manage to craft and watercolour a little I get completely engrossed and more than once DH has had to get me from my craft room and make sure I stop because I have no idea of the time or how long I have been painting which is both good and bad lol!

So my next experiment with this lovely stamp set was to use the two smaller flowers and to use a very pale ink to stamp with.  I already know that I am going to repeat this experiment to see if I can replicate the same result I achieved with the darker ink and pink watercolour.  I love this blue, white and Kraft colour palette much like the pink one it works naturally.  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
