Colour Splash

This is my second post today ... I have a card that I made for 2 challenges ... unlike so many of you ... I can never seem to make one thing for a number of challenges ... I don't think my brain can handle it ... So I have combined the Color Splash challenge at The Play Date Cafe ... using this fabulous inspirational photo ... 

With the Sketch Challenge at WaltzingMouse ... 

         

And this is my take on both ....


actually it is a color splash because I used the same technique as I did with THIS card ... I literally splashed black acrylic paint onto white CS ....


My rose is handmade ... not sure that you can see the "dew drops" created with glossy accents .... I stamped white CS using the WaltzingMouse Text - It stamps ... then used Spellbinder dies to get my scalloped edge ...


The other stamps used are a Penny Black (foliage) for the leaf stem and a digital Hero Arts (friends) stamp from Two Peas ...
I hope you are having a great start to the week ... I'll be back tomorrow
Keep safe

EDIT.... just seen that I can also enter The Shabby Tea Room challenge too with this card
"Get Creative" is the new challenge today set by Clare ... which means NO patterned papers allowed and a handmade embellishment ... Whoopi! I got 3 challenges in ... that's a record breaker for me!

House Guest ...

I have a guest staying with me for a few days ...  she's  a beautiful girl ... and oh so sweet ...
... meet Chucky ...




My friend had to go into hospital for a few days so I am cat sitting and it's good to have a cat in the house again ... though I confess I didn't sleep much last night ... a bit concerned about my guest who has rather taken to Mikey ... She came to stay once before and spent most of the time either under his bed or on his knee whilst he was trying to work.
I am also suffering with my neck and shoulder ... badly ...I've been to Pilates  and hope that maybe that and the Panadol will help ... it's kind of miserable and typing on my computer doesn't help.
But I wanted to thank Stella for this award ... and for thinking of me ...



"Thank you" it is so thoughtful of you ... I believe I have to tell 3 things abut myself and pass it on ...
well here we go ...
1. I sometimes have psychic experiences ... (spooky huh?)
2. My favourite seasons are Spring and Autumn 
3. One of the best things I ever did was start blogging ... I love all the friendships I have made
As for passing this on ... there are so many of you that I want to share this with so please feel free to take this ...
Back soon
