Watercolour Garden

Hello and good morning

It's cold today with flurries of snow and hailstones. I have to venture out to do a little grocery shopping and to get a little exercise but I'm squeezing in an entry for the challenge over at 



A long while ago I tried my hand at painting little flowers freehand, I wasn't that impressed with my efforts so I put the piece to one side... Then I saw this challenge and thought, well, maybe it's not so bad and made it into a card


I love to join in this challenge when I can... It pushes me to try things I perhaps wouldn't have and share pieces I perhaps wouldn't have either


 ....I have a box full of trinkets and these little gardening gloves seemed to be the perfect addition  - How I wish my garden were as colourful right now


As always I'm wishing you a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for popping in

Till soon

Thank goodness you didn't throw away your painting, Ros! I don't know what you didn't like about it--a gorgeous garden & a wonderful card! Love the score lines & the cute gardening gloves! Be safe out there. We had tiny hail stones for about 30 seconds when Fritz & I were walking, but we've also had a lot of sun. Truly looks & feels like Spring--wish you were here!! Love & hugs, Greta

Beautiful scene on your card. It makes me long extra for spring/summer. Here in the Netherlands snow is falling at this moment...brrr. Stunning stamping in beautiful watercolours.
Greetings Miranda

Lovely card Ros...nothing wrong with your flowers and I love the addition of the gloves! Our garden is white over as we have snow again! Sick of the stuff now...wondering if you have it too? xx

What a wonderful flower garden, Ros! I'm so glad you pulled this beauty out and gave it a home! Your freehand flowers are so delicate and perfectly done! Thanks for sharing this with us at CAS Watercolour!

I think we're all our own worst enemies sometimes Ros, as your watercoloured garden is just delightful and the gardening gloves a perfect addition! Lovely, lovely card my friend! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour! :0)

OMGosh I think your freehand flowers are DELIGHTFUL! LOVE the gloves and that sentiment too!

Marina said...

I think it's gorgeous - an English country garden - and I love the little gloves.

Your handpainted garden is so pretty and colorful, Ros. I think we are all overdue for Spring. I loved your sentiment and fun garden gloves trinket too. TFS and joining us at CAS Watercolour. Hugs...

Goodness, Ros, I love the look of this! You shouldn't hesitate to share something this pretty. I honestly thought it was one of those Art Impressions watercolor-type stamps. Forget what they're called, but they look just like this. Absolutely beautiful! Cute little garden gloves and love the simple card design with the score lines for framing. I wish my garden looked like this, too. Even in the summer it won't look like this because now the deer eat everything I try to grow. It's amazing how I have any color at all.

Wow, you painted a very bright and cheerful garden with pretty colors, Ros! And what a great addition the green garden gloves are! I also love that you scored the lines above and below of the watercoloured panel. It makes a simple and sophisticated frame. Hideko xx

What a delightful garden of pretty flowers, Ros! And, the addition of the garden gloves is perfect! Take care and have a wonderful week!

Diane said...

Wow, Ros this is beautiful, never doubt yourself, I couldn't do this at all, so pretty!! Love the added garden gloves embellishment. We had nice weather yesterday and maybe today, then snow again on Wednesday...and tomorrow I have 2 appointments and eye DR on Wednesday, so hope snow holds off.

I'm glad you kept this piece of artwork! Ros, this is gorgeous, love your watercolouring and the beautiful garden of flowers you created! The sentiment and those little gloves are so perfect for your card. I wish it was spring here, but looks like ole' man winter is not done with us yet!
