Fruit and Flowers


I am just stopping by with a few cards that I have made with images that I coloured whilst on holiday over Easter.  I managed to squeeze some stamped images and sparkle pens in to the case :)

First up is a card made with a beautiful ranunculus stamp from WPlus9:

I simply watercoloured the image with the sparkle pens and cut it out with a heart die.  I shall link up at Addicted to Stamps and More where the theme is Make Your Mark.

Next I watercoloured the lemon image from Sheena Douglass and used my triangle grid stencil on the card base.  I think the blues and yellows give a mediterranean feel:

I shall link this card up at AAA Cards challenge where we are using our favourite techniques - for me they are watercolouring and, of course, stencilling!  I will also link up at Happy Little Stampers April Watercolour Challenge which is Anything Goes (with the optional twist of rainbow).

You can purchase the triangle grid stencil from my Folksy store.

  2. Beautiful coloring on both images, Sarah. I know coloring can be relaxing for me so I hope it was for you while on vacation.

  3. Sarah, great cards! I love stencilling, it really helps to build a background quickly. Thank you so much for sharing your card with us at AAA Cards Challenge. - Sweet Kobylkin
