Best Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I used a piece of Watercolour Card. I added a little CS Aqua Lagoon Pixie Powder to a Mister Bottle with some water and gave it a good mix. I spritzed over my card and blotted off with Kitchen Roll.I repeated the process with CS Peacock Green Pixie Powder. This is a very pale background as I did not use very much PP - just what I wanted.

I stamped the image from the Woodware Fresh as a Daisy Stamp Set using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I coloured in using CS Colour Clouds - I used Decadent Teal, Decadent Denim and Decadent Bamboo. I dabbed a little into the lids of the pots and picked up with a Water Brush.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Lilac Spray Stamp Set, again using Versafine Ink.

I edged my card with Decadent Denim Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I matted onto Black Card and then onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I popped a little CS Clear Varnish Lacquer onto my Craft Sheet and mixed in a little CS Sparkle Diamond Frost and added it to the centres of my flowers.

I finished my card by adding some drops of CS Black Pearl 3D Accents (PVA).
