Watercolour Pear

Hello again!
 
Today I have a card to show you that I made for the Dynamic Duos 'Bold and Cheery' colour challenge #85 using Summer Starfruit and Garden Green plus any neutral colours (I used Kraft ie SU! Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla).
 
This stamp is a retired one but I love the softness of it along with the understated script in the background. I stamped the image onto SU watercolour paper and used my ink pads and blender pen to colour.
 
 
I topped it off with a small piece of Baker's twine and a button that were part of a kit I bought from SU last year.  I die cut the image using SU Deco Labels Collection and mounted it over a piece of SU Trim, burlap-inspired, made of flax and cotton - lovely!
 
 
I am also entering this card into the challenge over at Addicted to Clean and Simple #29 which is to use die cuts.
 
 
Thanks for visiting today!

  13. hiya Karen, only me again :) are you having trouble blogging? I am (",) it is letting me title my post and insert picture of my card, but when I start to type ... "blank" the text won't appear, just wondering is it a blogger issue or is something not working correctly on my computer. Can't wait to use the gorgeous stamps and dies you sent me :) you are so so kind Karen, huge hugs Marlou xx

    1. Hi Marlou, sometimes when that happens I close blogger down and then start again and it's ok. You know what it's like...a bit temperamental at times! You are very welcome, just thought it would cheer you up. It's all in the little things! xx
