I’ve been trying to join in the birthday celebrations at Less is More for the past few weeks and finally managed it with 24 hours to go ! All month long the LIMettes are celebrating their fourth birthday .
The challenge for this week is…….
As always I’m late getting on the band wagon with trends and have been steering clear of watercolouring , well actually that’s not true I’ve just been steering clear of posting my efforts. Today I’m feeling brave and wanted to share this card I made for the LIM Alphabet challenge. A little watercolouring and smooshing with Ranger Distress Inks and then a tad of stamping , can’t remember whose stamp it is I think its Penny Black but not sure. Fintec arabic gold watercolour for the gold highlights and then a glass dome over the centre. Looks much better in real life and for once can’t blame the lack of sun for the poor photo ,just the opposite today !
Happy Little Stampers have an anything goes challenge on with the twist of using a die but for once my Cameo has been left untouched , it’s about time the poor little blighter had a rest.
Crafty Life Challenges are also asking us to use stamps on our projects so am linking up there also.
Do pop over to both LIM and Happy Little Stampers lots of amazing cards in their galleries and by both DT’s.
It’s beautiful Marie! I love that sweet flower with the dome … Great background there too!
