Happy Little Stampers - Watercolour with a twist..



Hey,

I am back in NYC now. It was great to go home after a 6 month absence and see my family, my friends and my work colleagues. Hubby also managed to come home for the last leg of the trip, so we spent part of Easter weekend with his family including our Niece and Nephew.

I have been dying to play along with at least one of the Happy Little Stamper challenges, but haven't been able to for a variety of reasons.

So I was excited when I saw the April Watercolour challenge, because I do love a rainbow -


It also seemed like a perfect excuse to break out a couple of fun dies and also enter the HLS April die challenge -

JT gave me a great set of dies by Simon Says Stamp as part of our $20 challenge. The set comprises of a circle die and the circle hexagon overlay. I die-cut the circle first and then using distress inks and an aquabrush I watercoloured the stripes onto the circle. I added the hexagon overlay using my Quickie glue pen..don't know how I would live without this glue pen!

It took me about 30 minutes to decide what colour the card blank should be.. I like the pop of colour on the flat neutral grey. I die-cut the celebrate die by Winnie & Walter in a slightly shiny grey/silver card.

Final touch was to add 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets.

I am really happy with my card, it was nice to play with a couple of things that haven't seen the light in a while!
