Watercolour attempt!

Not been about for a few days -went to my Presentation but since arriving home have not emerged from under the duvet until midday today. Still not 100% but much better than I was on Monday - just need the donkey to stop kicking me in the ribs every time I cough now please! That said, I doubt if I will remain out of bed for very long again today......

Tried my hand at a little watercolouring at the end of last week - love this stamp!
Shame though that I didn't make a better job of stamping the sentiment - one of those times where if I'd felt better I probably would have re done - for some reason it didn't stamp cleanly - maybe there was something on the stamp pad.

Anyway, I still like the birdie and was pretty pleased that my painting attempt overall didn't look too bad.

Just used Distress Inks to paint and some glamour dusty stuff on the branch and berries. Quite pretty in real life ( as long as you don't look too close at the sentiment!)

  19. This is beautiful Viv and the sentiment is so pretty too, can't really see anything that looks that bad to me, and the pretty sparkly snow on the berries together with the great colouring make this is a super card! Sorry to hear you are still feeling rotten though, and do hope you feel better soon. x
