Happy Birthday (HLS- Watercolour)

IMG_0801 (2)

Hello and welcome

I’m back with another challenge over at  HLS Watercolour Challenge for March, 2020 with the fun  optional twist of FLOWERS!  However, anything  watercolour is just fine.

This week, I was playing with Altnew’s  Build-A-Flower: Cattleya.

After stamping in Gina K’s Obsidian Ink, I watercoloured with Altnew inks, before die cutting with the co-ordinating die.

The background used Clarity Stencils – Abstract Squares inked in Hero Arts – Charcoal Ink with  blending brushes.

Simply Dies _ Happy Birthday  was die cut and inked to match the background.

The flowers were then attached to the background.

Quite a quick and simple card, but I think the background really brings it to life.

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 a great week!!!

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.
