Water colouring for Mum

Hi All,

Today I have a card for my Mum's Birthday that is in a few weeks. 

I had some fun water colouring using an Altenew stamp and die set.

The photo and colours of the Altenew Challenge inspired me. I tried to follow the colours of the flowers in their photo even trying to blend the pinks so the edge was a slightly darker colour and the centre yellow.

I am quite pleased how it turned out:


I stamped and die cut the flowers before water colouring them. I stamped the leaves and just popped up the flowers when dry. 

This water colouring was quite precise rather than the more arty look I usually do but it was fun to have a go. I think Mum will like the fresh look which I emphasised using the light green base.

I will enter this into:

Cupcake Inspirations-For Mum and using the pink flowers as inspiration
CAS-ual Fridays-Encouragement card-using the flowers as inspiration-my words would work well for an inspiration card as well as a Birthday card.

Enjoy your day x

  6. Sandie what a delightful and fresh CAS card. I really like the combo of the green card base and the white space of the card layer. Add to that the pop of colour from your watercoloured images and you've put together a great card. Thanks for joining us for the WWC116 Mom's Theme Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week.
