Just because!!

Only one card tonight, I was getting ready to relax and an idea
came to me/

So this is it. Daisy/Gerber  stamped onto water colour paper, watercoloured
with Peerless watercolours then fussy cut.

Love them, they have such a depth to them. As you know I unpack all my 
stamps and tend to keep in like so I haven't kept the name of them but I'm
pretty sure they are Stamplorations (please correct me if I'm wrong) 

I put the card through the die cut machine with one of the 
3D folders that gives a wonderful crushed material look.
Once I stuck the flowers down I realised they really needed
some wink of Stella- carefully so it didnt move the
paint too much.

Finished off with this die cut 'Just because' I picked up
from a craft sale and a few enamel dots.


I was inspired by the colours, hot pink, bright orange 
and white and by the material on the duna cover and
the crisp whiteness.

Couldn't resist entering one more time.

without the option.

thank you so much for coming to look and I hope you come again soon.

I love the textured background! Do you know which folder it is? I haven't seen it before. The flowers are very eye-catching - bright and bold!

The textured background is a perfect resting place for those gorgeous daisies. Great design!

Hello Aileen,
in your cards, I see your great love for flowers. Each of them looks as if just yet grow on the plant. They are all so convincingly beautiful!
I record a message for you, but I thwarted the plans ... maybe tomorrow I can do it. Heh, I was a little bashful, and I do not know how I can handle this my disastrous English: - ((
