Signs of Spring and Watercolour

Signs of Spring in my garden

I know I know! ... I should be doing something useful ... like packing my case ... drawing up a holiday check list ... But I want to play ... 
I was looking for something ... my crackle paint actually ... which seems to have 'mysteriously' disappeared ... I have my suspicions - after finding a bunch of my acrylics stashed in 'someone's' paint cupboard! 
I didn't find what I was looking for ... but I did find a box of watercolour pencils ...
I can't even remember buying them - and they've never been used

Equally I am ashamed to say that I have never inked up a beautiful stamp set sent to me by Jacqueline (oh I love her work)

So ...... I thought I'd give this new (to me) technique that's all over blogland at the moment ... Ok, not perfect ... but hey! I've never done this before ... and it was such fun

Watercoloured flowers 
The stamp is by Hero Arts and I embossed it first in white embossing powder
... that little bird and cage were hiding in my bits box 

The other stamps are from Inkylicious and the paper is a digital from Digital House Design by Agnes Biro (No longer available)

Right, I'm off to do something useful ...

Have a lovely day
