CYCI#124 Water Color Sketch Challenge - Birthday Blooms

Hello and welcome to my blog.
I have been watercolouring and noticed that
Can You Case It - CYCI#124 had a watercolur challenge that my card 
would go nicely with

I started witha piece of Shimmery white cardstock that I added a wash of three of the new In Colors -  Peekaboo Peach from the bottom then Flirty Flamingo in the middle and then at the top Sweet Suagarplum - let that dry.
I then sponged around the edge of the shimmery white piece.

I added a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock to it and then I attached it to Whisper White cardstock as the main card.

I used the beautiful Birthday Blooms which I stamped onto the Shimmery White cardstock with Basic Black Archival ink
and then watercoloured the flower in 
AND then fussy cut it out which took a long time!

I then attached the flower directly to the shimmery white
and added some touches of clear Wink of Stella to the flower.
Stamped "for YOU" on the bottom right hand side.

Thank you for stopping by.
Do go to the link above and see all the lovely cards that everyone has 
made for this challenge

Bye for now



  1. This is a very pretty card, Maree. Fussy cutting that entire flower image was a feat of determination!

    1. Thankyou Kayla for your lovely comment. Fussy cutting takes a long time but I realised that I had to cut it out - to stand out from the background.

  2. Looks fabulous, you've got some amazing fussy cutting skills! Thanks for joining CYCI :) Eva
