Purple Delphinium card

Good afternoon friends, glad to report it's
a bit warmer today. Hoping Summer has
returned at last!
Here is my usual 'Less is More' card,
it's a colour theme this week and......
As purple is one of my favourite colours,
(along with blues and pinks) I was very
 happy. I went for a watercolour look
once again.

As I couldn't find the right stamp, I
decided to be brave and just paint my
own flower. I think we should all be
brave and just 'go for it' sometimes,
don't you agree?

I loosely....very loosely lol painted a
Delphinium type flower. I added a
few dots and strokes and job done ;)
Enjoy your weekend whatever you
 have planned ;)

ps. I am still trying to catch up with
jobs since being away. Plants to
sort, floors to wash, just had to make
my LIM card first today though ;)
Now to do that and bake a rhubarb
 crumble too.

Busy next weekend as it's our
granddaughter's 1st birthday (how time
 has flown) and also our daughter's birthday
 the day before.
So I am planning a big family party,
I have a super choc cherry trifle planned
and also a cake of course ;)

  11. Your painted flower looks beautifully! (Like you see through your eyes on a very hot day) And glad to read that it is sunny overthere aswell! Today it is going to be 28 degrees here... so all doors and windows closed and in between being lazy with a book enjoying the sun I will be baking a cake and do some last gardening... Sounds like a yummie party! Wish you sunshine today!

  12. You painted that? You're a rock star!

  13. Beautiful card, enjoy your party Debbs x

  14. Such a gorgeous card Viv, love the way you painted your flowers and the details. You are very talented. Sounds like you are very busy.
    Happy 1st birthday to your granddaughter! x

  15. I'm extreeemly impressed. It's very beautiful. If I thought I could produce this I would be brave and go for it. The reason I love stamps is that they allow me to be artistic without the talent.

  16. OMG Viv what an amazing piece of art!! Stunning painting. Hope the birthday celebration was fun
    Thanks so much for joining us this week
    "Less is More"

  19. This is simply gorgeous Viv, you do watercolouring so well!
    Thanks so much

  20. Cudna. Eteryczna, delikatna. Jestem zachwycona, tym bardziej, że akwarela to technika, która podziwiam.

  21. SO VERY beautiful, love the delphinium.

  22. WOW, lost for words Viv! You make painting a flower sound so simple, not!!!!! Mine just end up like muddy puddles. Beautiful card.

  23. So pretty. Wish I had the courage to paint my own flowers. Then again, I should probably just try...

  24. Love the beautiful card - can I come for dessert?

  25. Beautiful card Viv, and your own painting? Super stunning!
