Wonderful Watercolour...

Hello :)

I'm back with a card today- I've not been well enough to make many cards at all since before Christmas but this last week I've managed to make four... most of them very simple but I'm very happy!! :) 

If any of you follow my little blog over on Facebook or Instagram, you may have already seen a sneak of this card as I was simply so excited I had to share it straight away...

... but I have since taken some better pictures on my proper camera so please keep reading!! ;)

Last week saw yet another fabulous release from Stephanie at Clearly Besotted... I seem to say this almost every time but I really think this may be my favourite release so far!! :) I couldn't wait to play with this particular set as it is just stunning... so I just had to drag myself to my desk the evening they arrived despite not really feeling too well... and I am so glad I did as I love what I made!! :)

Having seen so many of the fabulous DT creating gorgeous samples from this set with watercolour, I decided it was time I gave it another go... and for once, it actually came out looking the way I wanted it to!! :) If I had had the energy, I would have danced for joy!! ;D ;D I used the 'Wet on Wet' technique, which is truly wonderful with a heat embossed image as the embossing pools the paint so beautifully :) I also added some ink splatters... my technique with this needs some serious practise as I ended up being a little (okay, a lot!) heavy handed when trying to get a *few* *slightly* larger splatters :/ lol
