Purple wishes (LIM362, FMS319)

How lucky am I to make two cards in one day. It's been a while!

This is the first time I'm doing something on watercolour paper and just did a rough scratching with watercolour pencils before adding water.  I've been on a personal challenge to refresh my background stamping techniques to make my own 'design papers'.

I combined four challenges for this one:

Happy Birthday to You!!

Background florals:  Free stamp set with Creative Stamping magazine, ( - Issue 51
Sentiment:  Free stamp set with magazine, Crafts Beautiful ( - January 2018

  4. So soft and pretty. Beautifully stamped and watercoloured. Creating my own background is on my to do list this year too. You did great here, but it may have covered up too much of the lovely untouched white space we love to see on CAS cards. Thank you for sharing with us at Less is More.

  5. Beautiful card! Those flowers are just gorgeous! Love the colours and the sparkle! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  6. Gorgeous card Riette, I love your simply watercolored background, so arty and awesome! :-)

    thanks for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
