 Hello everyone,

A new challenge is up and running over at 613 Avenue Create with an anything goes challenge or an option of...WATER COLOURING..

Oh, how I love to water colour and had the perfect stamp in my stash and was shown how to use it on You Tube by Amy R Prairie Paper and ink.

So this is my stamp sitting in my stamp positioner all ready to go onto water paper..
I fell in love with this stamp the first time I ever saw Amy R using it and wanted it, WITH the matching die to make life easier, so I bought it..

Embossed in gold, makes water colouring so much easier..

And didn't stop at one..the single flower comes in the set..

Using my cheapo water paints, I painted..

Then die cut everything out....

Went around the edges with blue paint because I never line everything up right..

And here they are all dried....

Time to glue on my card...BUT, not like you think you would be,
 they are glued hanging over the edge..I know, I nearly had a fit doing it..

After trimming the edges you fit the cut off bits in the gaps, so not too much waste at all..

Then I die cut sentiments..

And each one...

Got a different sentiment..

Even the flower design were slightly different..

And they all got a splattering of white paint, just to finish it off and dull down the pink a bit..
some glass water droplets were added..

And done, three cards in my stash..

So there we go, thank you so much for stopping by and do pop over HERE and add any project you want, would be great to see you there..

Catch up tomorrow..
