Trending with Water Colouring

I was playing around recently with a new stamp
merrily water colouring this lovely stamp.
It wasn't till I had finished that I realized I
had chosen Water Colour as my word for
our Trend Week so you guessed it
I am showcasing it for my challenge at
Just Us Girls. Whoo Hoo!

Now I am not one that enjoys colouring in images
but I loved how simple this stamp was - and it
said 'Watercolour' Poppies.
I didn't even think to use watercolour paper
but as it turns out I was pretty happy with the result.
Here are the products I used -
White card stock
Foam Squares for dimension
Stamp is Rubberneck Watercolour Poppy
Memento Bamboo Leaves
Tim Holtz Squeezed Lemonade
SU Tangerine Tango/Calypso Coral
Tim Holtz Speckles Stencil
Sentiment is GKD inked on vellum
Pearls to finish.

How about popping over to our blog Here
to check out what Watercolour Wonders
our Guest Colleen and my Talented Team Mates
have created.
Hoping to see you there 'cause this Trend is
so hot at present and so addictive.
You could be chosen as our Chic of the Week
and be in the running to be
Our Guest Designer in October.

Make today FABULOUS.

Over at the STAMPlorations Blog
I found a fabulously simple card challenge.
All the details are HERE.
Some of you will know how much I (love)
my SU Four Feathers stamp/die set so...
and how awesome that to make them pop
even nicer is the Twist - GOLD!
I found some lovely gold paper in my stash
which was perfect for my backing.
I heat embossed my feathers on to that
with one I added a touch of Teal.
My splotches I used stencils from
Clear Scraps & Tim Holtz
inking with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers/Frayed Burlap.
Sentiments are from
Inspired by Stamping &
My Favourite Things.
I finished off with a bow from crochet cotton.
So glad you stopped by and
I love reading your Comments.
Thank You.
