WWC233 – Karen’s Feminine “Anything Goes”

P1080289 (2)

Hello and welcome

Here we are – already in August! This week our new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday is Karen’s Feminine “Anything Goes” Challenge.
Image may contain: one or more people and textThis week my card features some of my favourite flowers – Hydrangeas.  I love the gorgeous colours on their huge flower heads. It is one of my old original stamps and very well used.

I watercoloured the flowers after stamping on a piece of watercolour paper.  I stamped the first image in the middle, masked it and stamped to the left side. The same was done on the right side to give the impression of several blooms on the branch!

The centres used gold pen and the panel was trimmed and sprayed with Glimmer Mist to add some sparkle.

The fun started by cutting MFT ‘Celebration’ birthday die across the middle. At first I was thinking of layering the word to make an eclipse sentiment, but I changed my mind a cut it again in some white sparkle card and make it one layer.

The word wishes from part of MFT ‘Sweet Somebunny’ set was white heat embossed.

The panel was then layered on dark blue card, before adding to the card front leaving a small border.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a great day!

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
