One Layer Watercolour

Hi, I've been absent in blogland lately, what with a new Grandson and the get together organised by Kylie of HLS. We had a grand time catching up with old friends and meeting new crafters for the first time. My gorgeous Grandson has been in my thoughts since his arrival just over 4 weeks ago, Kylie and I were exchanging Nanna photos at the retreat as well!
Anyway I was meaning to share this card last week but with Seb coming to visit with his brother, Mum and Dad, I forgot so here it is now.


After seeing the fab watercolour cards my Mimi on the Penny Black site, I was encouraged to have a go at using that watercolour style.
This street lamp is a really old Flowersoft stamp that reminds me of the lamp post graveyard we passed on the way to the bus stop after visiting my Grandma as a young girl. All the old gas lights were slowly being replaced by electric ones in the older parts of Sheffield, the Victorian ones not converted were destined to be dumped in the councils street furniture depot!
The tree stamped three times is from a Penny Black set and the greeting was free with a magazine last year.
