 Hello everyone,

A new challenge over at AS YOU LIKE IT and them theme this fortnight is Your Favorite Colouring Medium..and why!..

For me, one hundred per cent, is water colouring, and as I'm writing this post I want to go get my paints out and paint, so guess my day is set now, as this will not go away..

I love the easy flow of the water paints on water colour card stock. I love how easy flowers are to colour, never perfect and not mean't to be..and so relaxing..

In fact, so relaxing I made 3 sets of 3..

I started by stamping my backgrounds for my cards..

A nice soft crackle stamp..

Then added my die cut and painted flowers..
I know I use these flowers a lot but they are really nice..

Hard to get a good water colour red, but these came our pretty good...

I love the green in the leaves too..

A nice simple and pretty thank you card with yellow enamel dots.

Two sets..

Ready for pink ones..

These leaves are all different...

Why?...because they are....leftovers from other projects./

But they work, the flowers are water coloured,
 some of the leaves are and some are not..

But they look nice together..

added Bee's and wooden hearts to these Birthday cards...

so there we go, 3 sets of 3 and pictures in funny order..

I just couldn't see properly when putting them into folder
so they got out of order..

Never mind, post done, and would be great if you joined in with you fave colouring medium
and don't forget to tell us why?

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow..

Hi Chrissy, these are beautiful, gorgeous flowers and I love the colours, really pretty. I agree about water colouring, it does lend itself to being relaxed, may have to have a diddle later.xx
