I am just popping by quickly! 😀 It is our ANZAC day public holiday here in AUS … and Gav’s sister and her family will be arriving soon to spend the afternoon / evening and have a BBQ tea. It will be another FULL house … with a couple of other of the kids friends here too! We had a lovely time this morning … went out for “brunch” to a lovely cafe overlooking Wollongong Harbour … the weather is just DELICIOUS!!! I am soooooo glad that summer is hanging around for a little longer!
I wanted to share the watercolour pansies card that we made at stamp club last Friday. It is a technique kinda based on the Floating Watercolour technique that you use with embossed images … but the pansies are done without the embossing. But … before I go any further … I have to acknowledge that I totally CASED this technique from Mary Jo Price-Williams (Techno Stamper). But … I actually think I might have seen it on one of my regular blog friend’s blogs??? (Let me know if I did!) These gorgeous pansies caught my eye … and I just knew my stamp club girls would love them! The sketch for this card was based on the Clean & Simple #82 sketch. (Click on sketch to visit site.) Isn’t it fab! 😀 …… Update 30Apr: Sonia reminded me that I saw these on her blog … how could I forget … cos I did giggle at her because she forgot to read the instructions for the pansies before trying them for herself! -> Sonia’s blog
Don’t forget … check my card recipes for a technique description for this great idea! It is soooo effective. (And … go back and look at my “Butterfly Delight” post from a couple of days ago! You will see this technique used for a great background piece!)
So … I better go make that pavlova for dessert! Did I tell you I am super good at making pavlova??? That challenge on Masterchef this week … I soooo would have killed it!!! 😉 Hope all my Aussie friends are able to have a lovely family day today like I am! But … whatever you are doing today … I hope it is a great day! Stampin’ Hugs, Andrea xxx
