Happy Birthday (HLS Watercolour )

IMG_7882 (2)

Hello and welcome

I’m back with the first challenge for the new year over at  HLS Watercolour Challenge for January, 2020 with the optional twist of DIE CUTS!  However, anything  watercolour is just fine.

My CAS card uses a background made by smooching Distress Ink and die cutting with MFT Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die and was joined to a white panel cut with the negative of the die cut.

The cute little shopping bags were made from a scrap, created with Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders and cut with MFT Gift Bags Dies.  The tops were coloured gold with WInk of Stella Gold Pen, before  being attached.

They  were then added to the card front along with the simple sentiment from MFT – Birthday Greetings using Brilliance Lightning Black Ink.

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.

I look forward to seeing what you create!  Good luck!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Wishing you all the very best for a wonderful, healthy 2020!!!

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. This is such a pretty card! Nice and flat for mailing, but the wavy die cut panels add so much interest. And then there are the cute little bags!
