Watercolouring flowers

I have just watched a video of watercolouring you might like to watch it here is the link I did the flowers first, using navy blue and violet re-inkers (the only 2 re-inkers I have ... yet!) then looked for a backing paper, and I just had a small piece of plain violet, so I watercoloured my own backing paper, and as it was my first attempt I was quite pleased with it. It fitted the challenge for this weeks colour challenge at StampTV, I managed to use my scrap of Voilet paper and finished it off with Silver ribbon, and then heat embossed the sentiment.
Thank you for looking ...

Kitchen foil embossed card

I saw the video embossing kitchen foil on Stamptv and thought I had to have a go, and was surprised how easy it was. Used one of the stamps from Stampin Up set Polka Dots and Paisley for the topper.

Thank you for looking ... Jose

Lovely as a Tree - Oak

Im back stamping again... this time I used my Stampin Up stamps Lovely as a Tree, using the large oak tree for the centrepiece, this was embossed with copper, as were the oak leaves. The sentiment was computer generated and again embossed with copper, both were mounted on brown CS. The green background was stamped on the lower half with the oak leaves using Versamark watermark stamp pad. I finished it off with brown ribbon and 6 brown brads.
This card fitter the challenges for StampTV where I had to use Brown and one other colour, ABC challenge where metallic had to be used, Creative Card Crew Challenge where the card had to be embossed in some way. Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge asked this week for brads or eyelets. One stop Craft Challenge was to see some cut work on my card.
Thank you for stopping by ... Jose
