The Flower Challenge #53 'Use your latest Stamps or Dies'.

Hi there crafty friends, back to share our latest challenge over at 'The Flower Challenge' again. Our February challenge is 'Use your latest Stamps or Dies', another easy one I think. Well I know I am always buying new crafty stuff anyway ;)....I must stop!!

I used my Altenew 'Poppy Garden' stamps and a sentiment from The Ton again. I also used this stitched die. Not sure you all know but you can get an A6 METRIC set from Heffy Doodle. I searched and searched for one which fits our UK card stock. 

I have told three other crafters this week too who didn't know. Yes I should be on commission shouldn't I.....but I am not ;)...just happy to pass on crafty tips.

Sathya is our Guest Designer this month and we have design team news on our blog also.

Enjoy your week whatever you have planned. Have you had the 'jab' yet ?...we are still waiting....eagerly! 

Come and see my card, hope you like it ;)

I used my distress inks and some Wow silver embossing. I water coloured the background to match my flowers. The edge die was a stitched one from Heffy Doodle again. A few paint splatters some sequins in silver and metallic blue and my card was complete.

Light not great again...sorry!

You have until the 25th February to enter our challenge, 
please add our cue card below when entering.

Doesn't matter about the light Viv, this card is stunning in any light, love the colour and background and layering. I had my jab yesterday!

This is one of the stamps sets I brought with me, Viv, and after seeing how you arranged the flowers on your card I will be pulling them out and CASEing your card. It looks fabulous as does your watercoloring.

Gorgeous card Viv! Amazing watercolouring of those beautiful blue blooms and background. So much depth and dimension with your cascade of flowers. xx

Vivien, I always love how you watercolor your flowers, I can almost see the ink traveling on the petals, and, if you fussy cut these beauties, I bow to you, my friend.
Love the silver embossing and your fabulous watercolor background, lovely details with those sequences.
Nop, we haven't gotten our vaccine yet, I'm still a little apprehensive, but if they have it available around here, we'll take it, and God Help us.
Stay healthy and safe, my friend.

Wow ...what a stunning card and absolutely beautiful Viv. I love the water colour effect and the prettiest of blue tones. Thank you for the tip too Viv x. DH had his jab yesterday, sore arm but all went well...hopefully mine won't be too long x.

Karen M said...

Oh my goodness, this card is oh so gorgeous! I love it. The watercolouring is absolutely beautiful - blue would be a colour I don't use very much, but this would encourage me to go blue more often
