Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for our new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday! This week it is Karen’s Challenge –Anything with a Feminine Twist.

Today’s card features the beautiful Hero Arts Florals – Nasturtium stamp set.  I love the bright, happy look of nasturtiums with the beautiful rich red, yellow, orange combinations.  I bought this set a couple of years ago, but only used it once (not very successfully!! LOL!!)

After stamping in Distress Ink on watercolour paper,  I coloured them using Altnew – Watercolour Brush Markers for the flowers and Distress Inks for the leaves.

It was then die cut with the matching die.

I took one thin die cut from Altnew – Fine Frames Cover Die in dark green cardstock. Then attached the flowers to fall over the edges of the frame.

I decided to let the flowers take centre stage and keep it CAS.

I stamped the sentiment from There She Goes – Sentimental Birthday in Memento Northern Pine Ink.

This was my first play with Altnew brush markers and loved the vibrancy of the colours.

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.
