Diamonds card

Hi friends, yes it's Saturday again and of course
I have another card to share with you today!
Back to two of my favourite colours again
 blue and purple....and a touch of silver
 this time too ;)
 
It's been 30c for the last few days here, I even 
saw 31c at one stage! Cooler and rain today but
 easier to sleep at night I hope now.
 
 I mention this  as I tried a spot of watercolouring
 and it all went  horribly wrong much to my horror.
My OH said it was probably the heat and the card/inks
reacting badly........hmmm I was still worried 
friends!!!! Panic station time even!!!

Anyway much to my relief I tried it again today
as it's cooler......much cooler and YES all was back 
to normal again. Can't say how relieved I was as
I do LOVE to watercolour !


Now I am wondering how all my crafty friends 
manage if they live in hotter climes.........any
 answers ? maybe you all have air conditioning 
though?


Right....... sorry enough of my rambling again,
come and have a quick peek at my card.
Enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)


ps. My OH's fairy house is almost complete,
I am SOOOO excited, photo soon ;)
Also our son is due to move house next week
and it's all going slow down the chain...it may
 not happen now ;(

    1. Thanks Faith......that header took me a LONG time to make, had to buy the font (gulp) and then mess about adding all sorts of bits to it!

  8. This is beautiful! I love the look of the watercolour on the embossed panel. Gorgeous!

    Even though I'm in Canada, our summers are very hot and humid so we have air conditioning. I didn't realize that heat and humidity would affect watercolours!

    All the best with your son's move!
