From the Heart – Red Rose (HLS)


P1080163 (2)


Hello and welcome

I’m back with a card for HLS Watercolour Challenge for May 2019 with an optional twist of HAPPY!  However, anything  watercolour is just fine.

It’s time for the new monthly challenge over at HLS Watercolour Challenge.

This month I have created a CAS card featuring a Kaisercraft stamp set – Always & Forever! When I found this set on sale in  a local store , I just couldn’t resist the beautiful rose bud!  So I finally pulled it out and was thrilled with how quickly and easily it came together.

After stamping in Antique Linen Distress Ink on a panel cut with CUTplorations Wonky Rectangle Dies, I watercoloured the rose using Distress Inks. (Candied Apple)

The sentiment is one of my old favourites again, There She Goes – Everyday Greetings!  I wasn’t sure what to add, but finally decided on something small and sentimental.

For a finishing touch, I added 3 small dew drops to the rose and leaves with small Glossy Accents drops.

I think this one would make a wonderful Happy  Mother’s Day card.  I know my mum would have love it.

Please head over to our blog and check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team!  I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.  Good luck!

Thanks so much for visiting. I really appreciate you taking the time.
Happy crafting

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.
