Purple Hibiscus

Me again, 

I just love painting and have been 
working on my own backgrounds this week
and thought a paper I made this week 
 would work well with the 
hibiscus stamp.

I inked the stamp, which came free with the Crafters Inspiration magazine
 first with black ink  but only lightly
2 in the top corners and 1 at the bottom
to make a focal point,
onto the purple watercolour card. 

Coloured in with just a one colour using 
water to make the shading. 

mounted onto some pretty spotty paper 
and onto a shade lighter purple 
card all found in the bottom of 
my crafty paper stash. 

Used the Aqua pens to draw around the edge of the now

Added a little sparkle pen to the flowers

and here it is.

I would like to enter it for the following 


Still not got to make those cakes

Really must stop playing 
and start to do some housework and cooking
but you know me.... 
much prefer to be crafting.

So I am off now
