Watercolour Stamping

Hey there ... How are you?

I'm feeling sorry for myself ... I've caught a cold from my son and I feel quite rotten right now plus Gipsy cat has had me up since 5am ...
My DH has had to go to the heart hospital for tests and being full of cold I couldn't be with him ... sigh

So much as I want to ... I haven't been up to creating but I did do a card yesterday ... practising stamping with watercolours

Just Us Girls have a Watercolour challenge this week


So this is my little contribution


I used Gelatos on my stamp and then sprayed it with water to get my background


The flowers and clock hands were on my desk so I added them to compliment the colours


and cut the "hello" using a PTI die

Thanks so much for stopping by ... I'm off to get some tea so I wish you all a lovely day

This is beautiful, Ros. I love the rose and clock hands.

Sorry you aren't feeling well. I think the flu is going around here. I am crossing my fingers and hoping that I don't catch anything. :)

Oh Ross, this is so very pretty!! The gelato background looks amazing and the clock hands and pretty rose are the perfect touch! Love the zig-zag stitching around the edges too, - such an elegant card!

Hope you will feel better soon and that DH is alright!

Oh, heavens, Ros, you feel like something the cat dragged in and you still make a card that most of us fully well and fully slept can only DREAM of making! This is exquisite!!

I hope your cold goes away, your hubby gets good results from his tests, and the darn cat sleeps until a reasonable hour!!

Happy Easter!! Hugs, Darnell

Beautiful Ros! That blossom is stunning and the background looks amazing!

Robyn Oliver said...

Beautiful card Ros, love your background, those Gelatos are pretty cool (haven't any myself) Cheers

Diane said...

Love~Love your background on this...so pretty and soft...what a clever idea to use the clock hands, too!! Having a Spring cold is the worse I think...hope you feel better soon. I think Gipsy needs to meet my Soot, maybe they would entertain themselves with each other and not keep us up at night!!!

Ira Huberts said...
