Sunday Watercolors

Hi!
Just popping in to share  this little cutie that I tried to make into a watercolor. I'm not really happy with the result - I blame the cheap paper I was working on (-; LOL, but I really enjoyed working with those colors - it's not till you look closely that you discover that he isn't just gray, but has a lot of different, very beautiful colors ranging from yellow ochre and indigo blue to indian red!


Hope you are enjoying your Monday, hugs, Karin

Dancing is like dreaming with your feet!

I recently discovered the cutest images by Wendy Burns; All Dressed up , and just had to play along in their "Use a button" challenge. I made sure I used some glitter for the Simon Says Stamp challenge  too!





Papers are from MME and echo Park. Buttons from BoBunny.

Have a great day, hugs, Karin


Glitter fun!

Today I'm sharing a card which isn't very much me:


Glitter isn't really my thing, but I wanted to play along with the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week too and when I saw a Beautiful card by Tasnim I wanted to try the technique she'd used, where you first emboss your image, then fill the different fields with glue and then add the glitter. My flowers were really Beautiful till I had the not so very great idea to create an inked bg for them (should of course have been done first). A lot of glitter came off during my harsh treatment but I still think it looks OK. The flowers and sentiment stamps I used are from Purple Onion Designs.

I'm also entering it here;
Natalie and Amy's Challenge - Flowers

Have a great day, hugs, Karin
