We're looking for Birds.

Bobby is Hosting this week at Just Us Girls
and it is our Word Week. I can see
so many beautiful entries and Bobby having a hard time
picking a Winner for her chosen word
If you have been a regular popping in to see my
work you will know I have been having fun
with water colouring.
Here I go again...
The colours I used for my background are

and Cracked Pistachio.
My beautiful bird is from
Repeat Impressions and has a touch of
purple added to the chest.

Both bird and sentiment are heat embossed in Teal.
Added some squares for dimension.
Finishing off with some coloured gemstones.

A Simple Hello!

Time for the latest challenge over at
Crafty Cardmakers and Kim's turn to HOST.
She has chosen a super popular Trend -

When I made this card I was in water colouring mode
and I enjoy it so much.
I chose to make my monochrome with a touch of Colour.
My base is white card stock and I topped it
with the water colour technique using
Tim Holtz Cracked Pistachio/Peacock Feathers.
I also added a touch of speckles from Tim's stencil.
The Hello sentiment is from Lawn Fawn
and cut several times for dimension.
The Birthday Girl sentiment is from
Inspired by Stamping.
The butterfly is heat embossed and inked
from Cheery Lynn.
Lastly a row of pearls and paper pierced.
Hope you will pop over and see what my Team Mates
have made - inspired you and you get to
join us in this challenge.
