Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for the next challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday!  This week Kath is hosting the “All About Occasions” Challenge.  That gives you lots of scope, so hopefully you’ll find time to share your creations.

Today my mojo has left the room sadly and I had a real struggle to get going on my card.  So many ideas but none were working the way I wanted!!  😦    I finally restarted and here is my card! LOL!!

I decided to work with an Autumn colour pallet, very different for me.

Finally, I finished this watercolour floral card featuring Concord & 9th – Hello Lovely Stamp Set heat embossed on watercolour paper with Ranger Copper EP and distress watercoloured. The background wash and some splatters used a wash of Dusty Concord.

The panel was  then trimmed down and added to some green paper.

Next was heat embossing the banner and sentiment from Concord & 9th Banners & Blooms Stamp Set, which was fussy cut and adhered to the card front using raised tape.

To finish, I added some small coloured gems to the flower centres.

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.

  1. Nailed it! Sometimes it just isn’t worth the ‘fight’ and it feels easier to start again in a total different direction, when I do that it feels kinda like I’m cheating but once the card is made I am right back on track again lol. ps loving the autumn colour palette!

  2. I absolutely hate it when I have some wonderful products in front of me and my mind won’t focus or come up with viable ideas. Sometimes one just has to step away. Clearly your mojo was revived and you went on to create a marvellous card, Helen. I love the bright Autumn colours and that beautiful gold heat embossing.
