Nature Emerges


Morning.
This is such an exciting time of year with all of nature emerging.  I love looking out the window and seeing colour.  I am feeling inspired this a.m. after seeing the challenge at Splitcoast which was called May flowers; use our flower stamps. 

I am having such a blast playing with my watercolour crayons so grabbed them and a flower stamp from Magenta and began colouring.  I have found by wetting my stamp first with water, then colouring with the crayons directly onto the stamp,  I get a great blended watercolour look when stamping.
This great sentiment from Serendipity was stamped with black Memento ink and done.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

 CAS on Sunday- CHEER UP


Inspiration Destination- ANYTHING GOES

City Crafter- FOCUS ON FLOWERS


Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Magenta, Serendipity/ Memento bl ink/ watercolour crayons/ paint brush

This is so very gorgeous. How do you find all the time to make so many beautiful cards. I must be slowing down in my old age! I am lucky if I do three a week these days.
