Wednesday already!


I can't believe it is Wednesday already...the week is definitely getting away from me.  Anyway, I have found time to make cards to play along with a few of my favourite challenges:

This card features lovely floral stamps and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted Stamps.  I have coloured the image using distress inks and water.  Some splatter and a few sequins to finish.  I will link this up with Less Is More's Challenge to feature watercolour on our card along with Clearly Besotted's Anything Goes Challenge (just!).  I can also link up with Keep It Simple's Challenge to use splatters.

My next card was inspired by the code word at Addicted to CAS - Sun:

I have used circle stamps from Uniko Studio and a sentiment from Mama Elephant.  I popped up the stitched tag for added interest.  I really like this very CAS look :)  I will also link up with Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes. 
I best dash as the link ups close on a few of these within the hour!!
I hope you like the cards - thanks for your kind comments :)

  6. Such gorgeous watercolouring on those gentle blooms, Sarah ... and I simply love your sunshine card ... the wonderful ombré dots over that sweet stitched tag with all that glorious white space ... just fabulous! Anita :)

  15. Two fabulous cards Sarah! Especially love you "SUN"-inspired card - great design and so fun! Thanks for joining us at ATCAS.

  16. Honestly, I could have sworn I commented on these apologies! I LOVE how you used your water colors on that gorgeous flower, Sarah! And, the splatters are the perfect touch! Loving how you stamped across your tag on the 2nd card, too! Such a clever idea that I will have to CASE!

  17. I love the dotted stripes that fit so perfectly across the tag and the background. The stitched border on the tag really helps it to pop from the base. Fabulous card. So glad that you joined us at ATCAS
