Tomorrow’s Forecast

I am thrilled to add that my card was chosen as an Honourable Addict over at Addicted to Stamping and More. Thanks so much!

Hello and welcome

Welcome to the November Watercolour Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. Each month we have a fun twist for you to use if you wish or it can just be a free anything goes watercolour.  This month the twist is ‘Get Well’.

My card is a little different as it features 4 umbrellas from Flourishes stamp set – April Showers. These were stamped again on scrap card and watercoloured using various inks and pens, and then fussy cut.

The background was washes on Distress Inks and is very pale.  Unfortunately, it was difficult to photograph well, but is lovely and soft IRL. 😦   I also ligjhtly stamped some small dots in matching colours.

This panel was then added along with a strip of watercoloured card and a strip of Couture Creations Fretboard EF.  The coloured umbrellas are then attached along with a double tag.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I stamped another umbrella in pink over the tag for added interest.

There are lots of great inspiration from our wonderful design team over on our blog. I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.
Thanks so much for visiting
Cheers

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.
