Watercolour Sympathy

Good afternoon, friends and followers! I don't know what the weather is like where you are today, but here in Northern Ireland it seems our summer has finally arrived! It is beautifully sunny and warm, just like a summer day. Long may it last!

Today I have a card I'd like to share with you that I made, not for a challenge this time, but just because I needed a sympathy card. I'm really enjoying doing some watercolouring at present and find that the Stampin' Up! Ink pads and Ink refills are perfect for this...and of course, everything still matches, colour-wise! I liked the single word sympathy that comes from the TIN OF CARDS stamp set.

I admit I'm not the best artist in the world, but I enjoy the shaded effect that watercolouring gives. I suppose the more I practise the better I should get...that's the plan anyway!!

Simple wedding card

Just popping in quickly with a simple card I made for a young couple who are getting married in October. I used the sketch over at Create with Connie and Mary CCMC373.

Here's the sketch...

Back to card making!

Hi folks! I'm finally back to making some cards after a bit of a break over the summer. I've missed being able to sit and craft occasionally, but other things have taken priority. I haven't managed to do a challenge for such a long time but here I am with two sketch challenges and two colour challenges.

This card was done for the challenges at Just Add Ink and ColourQ# 307. I'd forgotten I even still had Bravo Burgundy cardstock from a long time ago!

JAI #279

This second card is for the challenges at Colour Me Striking #88 and Freshly Made Sketches #203
