Watercolour scene card

Good afternoon everyone, so lovely and warm here again today (24c).
 I am loving this fabulous end to our glorious Summer this year.
Right onto my card. Here is another card for this week's
'Less is More' challenge. The theme is............................

"We want you to use a 
In addition if you could use watercolours that would be wonderful!"
Sorry,hard to photograph well as it was a side opening card for a change!
I made another attempt  this time using a Crafters Companion stamp,
 Imagine  ( Luscious Landscapes). I stamped on some watercolour paper
 and used a cream Linen card base again as it matched better than
 my usual white card.
I cut an aperture using my nesties for a change. 

A bit of watercolouring and a Woodware clear magic stamped
 sentiment and job done.

ps. Such a busy but lovely weekend we had, great party too.I
 cooked my usual  mountain of food......... our daughter says I cook
 for an army.
 My DIL laughed so hard when I asked her if I had made enough
 food I thought she would collapse lol.
After most of our guests left in the evening  we went back to the
 hotel my SIL and BIL were staying at and had a lovely swim ,
 hot tub and sauna.....................utter bliss after my hectic day :)
I hope you all have good weather too have a lovely week  my
 friends ! I intend to mostly rest...... and make cards.......and go to
 the beach...and get used to my new tablet  ( Nexus...latest version)
when it arrives :)

That is lovely watercoloring, Viv! Simple but it goes really well with the stamped image and cutting an aperture. For a while there, I thought I was looking at a framed painting. Thanks so much for the kind words you posted on my blog, and enjoy getting to know your new tablet!



Such a beautiful and tranquil watercolour scene Viv - love the aperture and the soft colours.

Your party sounds wonderful - thank goodness it was last weekend - if your weather is anything like ours right now, it will be cold, with lashing rain!
Hugs, Sylvia xxx
