Hello and welcome

I hope you can find the time to join in.

This week my card features Penny Black – Slapstick – Thinking with Stamps, Sunflowers!

I played around with the colouring this time.  I started by watercolouring using Altnew Watercolours, then added some Distress Inks.  I didn’t feel the flowers showed up enough on the white background as I was doing no line colouring. So then I brought out my Prismacolor pencils to add more depth.  I finished with some white highlights using a white Sigmo pen.

I had been planning a sort of CAS card. So when I still wasn’t happy with the leaves, I decided to frame the flowers with a circle die cut from the 2 largest circles in my set. I then marked off where the circle met the petals and fussy cut them to fall over the frame.

The sentiment is from Uniko !  I love this script.

I hope you like the finished card.

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

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.
