Friday Feature – Fanciful Flowers

This week at AnnaBelle Stamps, Kylie and I are showcasing the Fanciful Flowers Stamp set.

FF April 14

I kept things simple by white heat embossing onto blue cardstock and adding a pop of colour with a piece of patterned paper down the side.

Watercolour and Woodgrain @ Muse

Hello. It is my turn this week at the Muse Card Club.


I have been playing around with some watercolours – and feeling like a real painter, which I am far from mind you! I think the finished focal point looks like a tile. I struggled with the placement of the sentiment, so I left it off.
