All in Blue

Morning All

Feeling much better now. Had a nice day yesterday and thank you for all
your good wishes.

Another beautiful day here today and thought first I would show you something old, as it is Friday,

a couple of  photos take last year of my garden.

The long "building" you can see in this picture is Dens "man cave" !!!

Now back to why I am here 

Here is my card for today

I have used for the first time a new stamp from Hobby Art.

Stamped with Black Archival inks and used my new 
paints. Just look at the colour !!!

I splashed the painting with water to bring out a bit of texture to the background after I used
blue distress inks around the flower.
used a sparkle pen from Crafters Companion to paint the flower to give more

Mounted onto my "scrap paper" from my stash.

Used a blue distress ink to colour the card blank to bring 
it all together.

Used marker around the edge to give a dash, 
and hopefully 
Making it Clean and Simple card.

I would like to enter it for the following 

Thank you for popping in

Have a great day - the sun is shinning here so may get out into the garden
to start the clean up ready for the summer. 

Well one can hope :) 

And I look forward to you coming by again.
