Watercolour

Hi there...

Just popping in with a card for the new challenge at 


Where the challenge this week is watercolor

Actually that is a challenge for me ... I tend to over think things and it doesn't help ...
Anyway I just decide to 'go with it' and smooch my cardstock into some Gelatos which I'd watered down and mixed about ...


The sentiment was perfect for me with this look ... This is my own kind of beautiful 


I had a tiny piece of TH washi tape on my cutter and I smooched that too and added it just ... well, just because ...

I hope you are all having a good start to the week ...

Take care

~ Ros ~
