Floral Postcard #3 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. I’ve been playing again, lol, and here is the end result …

I love creating postcards
I'm happy with the outcome
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges


I have definitely been obsessed with floral images this month and it seems that postcards may well be a new obsesssion too. For this postcard I decided to use one of my Happy Little Stampers stamp sets and do some no line water colouring. There are parts where I am really really happy with the end result and there are parts where I’m a little disappointed. The disappointed I can’t do anything about because that is where I have gone over the watercolouring with other colours when I didn’t mean to. I can’t do anything about that because it is what happens to my arms at times. They spasm and I can’t always control it so I’ve learnt to live with it. Learning to like and love my crafting imperfections has been my main challenge and will always be so.

But I need to remember that other than a bit of paint where it shouldn’t be I coloured these flowers and the butterflies well and I’ll take that result any time. 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
