Celebrate Life's Beauty

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Happy Thursday to you all!

My dad is all sorted now for the next 2 weeks as Rick and I are now on lock down.
I had to do my dads shopping and sort out his prescription.  He is doing well and I am just so relieved to have been able to get his shopping for him as I don't want him going out at all.

Please stay safe and carry on crafting!

Today another watercoloured card using Sheena's products.

Step by Step

1. 8 x 8 Kraft square base card.
2. Matted and layered brown pearlescent card.
3. Stamped image onto watercolour card then using liquid pigment inks created background around stamped image and added salt whilst ink was wet.
4. Watercoloured flowers and added the Cadence just pearls, whilst wet added Sheena's metallic powder in gold.
5. To finish off using Micron pen drew around the background and stamped sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Arty Divas #18 - Anything Goes
TTCRD - Anything Goes
Unicorn Challenges #52 - Flower Power
613 Avenue Create #231 - Anything Goes
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #128 - Anything Goes

oooh, Linda! Aren't the colors in your beautiful floral design simply breathtaking? Yes, they are! The last 6 weeks have been unusually harsh regarding my abilities, so I have not left as many comments as usual. I have enjoyed all your beautiful creations, and appreciate your inspiration. Please forgive my inability to get this fumble fingers working properly. hugs, de
