Hello Everyone...

Leaving the water colouring for a bit,I moved onto die cutting flowers, as you do, making some inky and sometimes painted backgrounds.. and made a collection of "Thinking of You "cards.

I made quite a few the same but different colours and backgrounds so will share individually..

This was my very first one and still almost my favourite..

The dies are unbranded and a set of three layers...with the leaves too...

The background here was Distress Oxide inks..

I am not patient when sponging colours and my arm hurts and I get it wont blend properly or fast enough, but the oxides are pretty good.

I also inked around the edges, especially the leaves and curled them a bit..

I added a gold die cut Thinking of You and some nuvo crystal drops..

So there you go, card number one..thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow..

It's really beautiful Chrissy! Love the layers, love your colour choices too. Very soft and dreamy! Hope you get a chance to make one of those bags. Thanks for your encouraging comments :)

Sorry I haven't been around for a few days Chrissy. I got this awful virus last Friday, that's going around and still feeling rough. Three nights with no sleep at all and a cough that hurts my whole body when I cough.
Love your pretty card and the flowers are gorgeous. Big hugs, Carol S.xxxx

Chrissy this blue is so calming and the gold is so elegant to make a wonderful combination.
