Thanks so much to the Design Team over at Time Out Challenge for selecting my card for Honours at their “Breast Cancer Awareness” Challenge.

Hello and welcome

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

WWC241 – Dawn’s Feminine “Anything Goes” Challenge

When I looked through some blog posts, I was taken with the Time Out Challenge theme – Breast Cancer Awareness!  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, a timely reminder for everyone to check their own breasts. I’m sure this terrible disease has touched the life of someone you know.

So for my card tonight, I decided to play along with this Challenge, with some words of encouragement.

I chose Concord & 9th – Wonderful Florals, starting with gold heat embossing this lovely image.

It was then watercoloured using Altnew Pan Watercolours. The sentiment was covered in 4 layers of Clear Wink of Stella to give a lovely glittery finish, while remaining a simple one layer and not adding any other colours. So pretty IRL!

I selected sentiments to work with the word ‘wonderful’. These are from SSS Beautiful Flowers and Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold and Greetings stamp sets and gold heat embossed them at the top and bottom of the image.

The panel was then trimmed and added to  a card front.

I love the simple sentiments on this card and feel they are appropriate for someone going through a difficult time.  I enjoyed making this simple one layer card with beautiful flowers and watercolour.  Most of my cards fit this design, rather than lots of layers and extra additional embellishments.

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. Wow, Helen, that gold embossing takes my breath away! I love the colours you’ve used in the floral images and the way that stamp has them twining around the “Wonderful”. You’ve chosen some perfect sentiments to combine with the central sentiment. Lovely work!
