Take Flight......

Let Your Dreams Take Flight.....
Here is today's card.....
The flowers and smaller dragonfly's have been stamped and water coloured.
The larger dragonfly has been die cut and inlaid back into the card.
CAS Mix Up challenge this month is stamping and Inlaid Die Cutting.
I have popped on wink of stella for a little bit of bling and
on the bottom right dragonfly some glossy accents.
The sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed.
I finished with hand embellishing, using a black pen and
water droplets of glossy accents (that look a little yellowy in the photo!).
Learning all the time with water colouring 
and enjoyed how the colours blended together.
I used Distress ink pads and markers.
There where numerous attempts using different colours 
and different card stock before I got there!

I have a friend's daughter leaving home for the first time, with a new job, 
so this card will be heading her way x
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

Birthday Wishes.....

I bought this stamp ages ago and was inspired by a couple of challenges 
to actually use it!
This is my card.....

I have used the sketch and the photo for my inspiration
from The Fusion Challenge...
I love to join in at.....
The CAS Watercolour Challenge and used the colours of Green and Pink...
My choice of medium is Water colouring... and Zigs
The pretty flower stamp has been stamped and embossed in white.
I then played with the zigs to colour it in.
I wanted a delicate sentiment to complement the image, 
which took an ordinate amount of time to decide and to execute!
I finished off the card with delicate splats 
and layering onto grey card to represent the grey on the car in the photo.

I am glad, that at last I have used this pretty flower stamp 
and very much enjoyed the process of making this card.

Thank you so much for finding time to stop by my blog.....
