How quick did this week go? ... I think I must have blinked and missed a couple of days. I seem to have been very busy doing absolutely nothing and this morning I had every intention of popping round to visit you all but instead I was very naughty and went off for a crafty play.
There are quite a few water and spring themed challenges around at the moment so I set myself a challenge to try something different. I'm not quite sure what you will make of my card or even if I should be showing it to you at all, but hubby said he likes it.... so here goes.
I used Aquamarkers and watercolouring - painting the base card with some 'flowery' colours and a slightly smaller piece of card with blues for sky. After drying off the 'sky' card I used a Poppystamps 'blooming posie' die to cut flowers from it and then drew in some stems and leaves. I added gesso through a Memory Box 'mini dots' stencil for the 'rain' and then added a bit more blue with the Aquamarkers before sticking it on the base card.
All I can say in my defence is that at least I gave it a go!
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Mod Squad challenge 'water, water everywhere'
Poppystamps challenge 'splish splash!'
The Craft Barn challenge 'April showers'
Love To Create challenge 'anything goes mixed media'
Country View challenge 'spring'
Cuttlebug Mania challenge 'April showers'
The forecast here is for a dry weekend so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Hope you all have a fun weekend and I'll be around to see you soon.
