Inky things

I have scheduled this to post whilst at the National Championships so I hope Mr Blogger behaves himself - I haven't got much free time now until the first week in September but am hoping to be able to get home for an overnight stay when I have 2 days off together so will be round to visit everyone whenever I can!
If the forecasters are correct I am currently enjoying some lovely weather and am hoping that it will last for the entire Championships.

Before I came away I did manage to make a couple of cards.

A poppy die cut from a leftover piece of watercolour card and painted with watercolour paints.
The background was another oddment of watercolour card. Brushed Peeled Paint DI onto the bottom then overstamped with some foliage stamps.

A few red paint splatters and some red Nuvo crystal drops next and finally a die cut sentiment.

Quick card really and hope you like!

Hoping that you too are having sunshine and blue skies and thanks for stopping by. xx

A great watercolour card and the poppies really pop against the delicate background. Hope you aren't having the steady rain and grey skies which is what is happening here today although of course the gardens needed rain and it is good to have cooler temperatures.

This is so soft and pretty Viv - it looks as though you've handpainted it all rather than used stamps. The red splatters are perfect...I rarely splatter as I always seem to ruin the card!
