Follow your Dreams Ladies

A good morning to you all and 
thank you for popping in.

 here is my card today. 

I had a brain wave yesterday and thought of this card ....

First I found a sheet of watercolour paper which I had been playing 
with the other day.  Which Stencil shall I use? mmmmm

Ended up using
 the Clarity Stencil Circles and used various distress inks to 
colour in the circles. 

Cut down the paper and save the un-used bit for another project. 

Next try the stamps on the card before I stamp !!! 
 to see how I think 
best way to use the stamps .... ..... which way ? 


or this 

Yes has to be this way.... use Black Archival permanent ink to 

Add a yellow edge with watercolour paint around the picture
and mount onto black card
Final step mount onto cream colour card blank made from a sheet 
of A4 card. 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for popping in and a big thank you for 
all your kind words of support. 

Hope you are have a great day -weather not so good today bit over cast
as is my feelings today... problems with family again.


going to try to have another day in the garden today

I look forward to hearing from you again
