Another late evening post from me. This time it's to say that I'm guesting over at the HLS Watercolour Challenge this month. I love to watercolour so I was so pleased to be asked to join in this time.
Here is my card
The optional theme this month is rainbow.
For my card I decided to use a rather busy all over botanical stamp that came free with a mag a couple of years or more ago which featured roses. However for the rainbow twist to work I decide to leave the flowers blank and colour the spaces in between.
I stamped the rose panel with Versamark on MM paper using my Misti and embossed in white EP.
Using my Zigs I blocked in some colour in a rainbow effect, then spritzed it with water to blend.
When dry I trimmed the panel down and mounted it on a black base, adding a white embossed sentiment and a die cut that my buddy Sarah gave me at the HLS retreat last year which I coloured black with a Copic pen.
So thanks for stopping by, check out the rest of the team here for even more watercolour goodness!
The saga of our access track continues with a new twist today. After weeks of free flowing water down it courtesy of heavy wagons crushing the old drain, the #Railtrack contactors decided, without telling us, to dig up the track and lay some new drainage pipe this afternoon. Hurray you may think but as they didn't tell us they were going to do it we couldn't use it to go out. Good job I nipped to Sainsbugs when I did just before lunch. Al was supposed to be going to a friend's place to survey ready for a new shed, so when he thought they had finished he leapt into the car only to be told it would be another 15mins before he could use the track! Just typical of the contactors, a law unto themselves. It was a good job that we have access to the main road across the field. After all the work there was still water coming down the track when he returned some time later, Hopefully they will return to finish the job!
I'd like to join in over at:-
