We have some gloriously sunny weather still here - fours days in a row - not quite shorts weather but still nice enough to have a cuppa outside on the patio with just a thin sweater on!
My share for today is a CAS card.
And you can see that I've been playing about with paint.

The original attempt ended in disaster - this started off life as a CASE of a card by Kim HERE  but the sentiment stamping left a lot to be desired (actually it looked like I'd had a few drinks it was so tilted.....)
So I had to rescue my painted flowers by cutting round them and re-mounting onto another piece of white card where the sentiment was actually straight (after the third attempt).

The slightly raised effect of the design I actually quite like so perhaps the 'disaster' didn't turn out too bad after all!

Inktense pencils used to colour the stamped flowers (lots of masking done here!) which are from the SU Bloom with Hope Set. Added a few teeny black blingy bits in the centre of the main flower. The sentiment is from a Rubbernecker set.

Challenges -
Time Out - Case Kim's card
Incy Wincy - CAS
Crafty Sentiment - Lots of Flowers

Off for a sit on the patio! Have a great day. x
