This is a fair size post as I have done three cards. Enjoy
This first card I did with the Addicted to CAS Challenge in mind. This weeks challenge is petals so I had a bit of a play with the stamp. This stamp is from Inspired to Stamp and is new to me. It comes with the main small bunch of flowers and a single petal. I stamped the main bunch then added the single one, but covered one of the petals on it to infer that that petal has fallen.
I then stamped the single flower falling and two single petals this time covering the other three petals and only stamping the one. A bit of the line didn't stamp so I drew with the versa emboss pen to add it back in. All the stamping was white embossed.
I watercoloured with Zigs and got a lovely pink/orange mix but kept fiddling around and ended up with quite a dark flower. Too late to do it again so will use this one and continue on my quest for soft colours.
I finished the card off with the 'Awesome' gold foil cardstock die cut and then decided to add the stamped sentiment 'you are'. You have already guessed haven't you, it was not a clear stamp so hard to judge and ended up crooked. My fix was to stamp again onto the same watercolour cardstock and cut as a little banner.
This stamps is another from 'Inspired to Stamp'. I have combined two separate stamps to make a cluster and I love how it turned out. Again stamped and white embossed and zig watercolours.
I haven't added any Wink of Stella but will do so later. Just forgot before I took the photo.
Finished the card off with the 'congrats' which is from silver mirror cardstock and die cut. All finished off with some randomly placed sequins.
Now the final card for tonight is the W9Plus birds stamped and clear embossed as I like the control for watercolouring.
My birds are a very unique rainbow coloured species that like hanging out with my rainbow coloured flowers in my imaginary perfect garden. There is a very strong theme at the moment for making a scene on your card so I thought I would do that. Here we have the family at home which is up on the branch.
Their getting a bit skittish as mum is late with dinner and has rocked up with a french fry and they were rather looking forward to worm burgers. Mum can never work out these teenagers, so thats why she's standing there with leaves dropping down all around her and yelling out 'what? Whats up???'
So there you go, have I set the scene for you?.
Right now for challenges:
Bird card of course

Frangipani the first card is definitely a summer garden item.
