A Little Watercolour

Hello...

It's taken me awhile to get back into creating again...Pat came to visit yesterday and I helped her to make a few cards then later I got around to doing a little watercolouring...Before I share my card I'd like to thank the ladies at Inkspirational for giving me a Top Pick some weeks ago for This card ... I'm really grateful

On to my card.....


I used a stamp from Wplus9 and Gansai Tambi paints to loosely  colour the embossed image
Stella brought me some lovely square stitched dies and I wanted to use them for this project


By partially cutting a large die I was able to create a folding card to mount the other 2 squares on and added a sentiment cut from glittered cardstock and some gems


It's so cold here right now... they've even forecast some snow...sigh 
I should be getting out my summer clothes ready to pack but I just can't bring myself to do it yet - I mean you have to try on right? And I am not going to be parted from my thick jacket today! Lol!

Have a lovely day and I'll catch you soon

Wow... the prettiest of card, beautifully water coloured. The pop of glitter from the sentiment is perfect.Glad you're back to crafting and yes we've had snow today!

Ros, your watercoloring of this beautiful image is just divine! Such pretty colors, so fresh and summery. Really love it with the white embossing.

Snow?! That's just not right for April--haha! Just think--you'll soon be relaxing at that wonderful spot you love! Well, my friend, you certainly are back into it now--stunningly gorgeous, feminine card! Love the 3 layers--never think to do that! Hugs, Greta

Gorgeous card Ros! Love the beautifully colored blossoms! Simply stunning! The shimmery sentiment adds such a touch of glam! Sending warm, sunny thoughts your way :)

OMG Ros this is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! I am smitten...your water colouring is fab and I can only sigh and stare. Good to hear Pat spend time with you; but the weather sounds awful. It's cold here too; we had loads of rain and hail. And even frost in the early morning; yikes!
Good to see you had time, inspiration and energy for creating. This card is a fab example of your amazing talents.
Miss you; big hugs!

Gorgeous card...I am loving the pretty pastel colors, so cheerful and soft! Weather here is cold, wet and gloomy...going to see Mother's Day movie with my daughter this am, might as well sit in the dark and at least enjoy a movie..hah! I still have 'pain' with the loss of my Nellie, last night on TV there was a commercial with a Goldendoodle on it and I broke down and cried, it's a long tough road I think when you lose a beloved pet! Thinking of you!

So pretty, Ros, love your flowers!

It feels like it could snow here, too...brrr! It should be warmer next week, though. You card is so gorgeous with the lovely water colored flowers! Awesome dimension with the three layers and fab touch with the glittery sentiment!

Oh, so pretty! What a beautiful, floral image, and you've colored it perfectly! Love the pairing of that scrumptious, glitter phrase, too!

This is so lovely. Your watercolor looks perfect and I like the little touch of glitz with the glittered senti. :-)
