Watercolour Weekend

If is doesn't stop raining soon we will all be watercoloured ! ! !
At a team meeting a few weeks ago Sharlene showed us a watercolouring technique. This weekend I finally had a chance to play, and this is what I came up with.
Not sure if you can see on this photo but the lilly pad
and bullrushes are watercoloured, and the cute wee frog was inked up with versamark then garden green then clear embossed.

These two use the "Fifth Avenue Floral" Stamp set. The yellow centre flower on the second card has been watercoloured and then I covered the whole thing in versamark and clear embossed it.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Birthday Daisy

Not another Upsy Daisy card I hear you say . . . But yes it is true, I am finding it hard to put this stamp down. This card was for my sister in-laws birthday last week. I also made a matching Candle, box and envelope, but gave them to her before I realised I hadn't taken a photo. . .


I had a couple of ladies ask what we could make in the way of boxes for little thank gifts etc. I knew there were quite a few options to answer this, but when I mentioned it to Sharlene and Michelle they both immediately said "Origami Boxes". So I went home and did a bit of net surfing and found some Origami Boxes, and thought OMG I don't think so. . . . Then I found the instructions and WOW once I made one it was all over, I now have quite a few, all different shapes, sizes and colours. Here are two from the workshop I had last week.

Two quite different boxes, but both starting with the same idea.
