Daisy card

Hi there friends, hope your weekend is going well so far ?
I have been baking again today for our son and family
 (cheese and onion pie, pic below) and doing lots of 
walking too.
 
 My OH has been making his usual pear juice from our
 plentiful supply of pears we have in  the garden. He
 makes apple juice too from our own apples.

He is either making that or making his famous honey
 ice -cream  pic below) or doing something arty or
 gardening. He still has some model houses half painted
 and now all sorts of long weird pots are hanging in 
his garage along with other large ones he has made
 sitting on a shelf. Photo's soon !
 
Right back to my card for this week's 'Less is More'
challenge. This time it's a lucky dip and 'Watercolour'.
I was a very happy bunny when I read that I can tell you.
I do so love to watercolour. I have been designing some
 digital cards too, will post those soon.
 
Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned. We 
are off swimming again ...and eating all my bakes
 and drinking all the juice....and there is cake too....
happy days!

I took the plunge and bought some Kuratake Gansai 
Tambi watercolour paints and also experimenting with 
Bristol Board too. Loving both so far!
 
 I did lose a die from my new Hero Arts set  I am using here
 boo hoo. When I cut the dies apart one sprung sideways
...darn it! The search goes on for it yet !!!

Ok here is my card, come and take a quick peek ;)
 
 

LIM, CAS, Daisy, Watercolour
Bristol board
Kuratake Gansai Tambi Watercolour paints 
Hero Arts Infinity die Postage stamp
Hero Arts Daisy and bugs stamp and cut (stamps and dies)
Glamour dust
3d pads


Just love that little bee ;)

This is beautiful! I love the way you shaded your flower making the tips of the petals darker than the centers of them -what a beautiful look and something I never remember to try! Thank you for the inspiration and thanks for joining us at Less Is More!
