Hi everyone!

Very quick and short post for a card I've made for the current sketch over at the Retrosketches Blog.

This is what the sketch looks like:

and this is what I have made:

 I've played with different shades of only one blue watercolour paint on regular cs.  Cut the diamonds with my Tim Holtz Alterations Lattice die from the painted cs and adhered to a white panel.  Gave some of the diamonds some shine with stickles.  Adhered the panel onto my card front with foam tape.
Scroll stamp and die from Verve and the 'Leafy Flourish' die from MFT.
The little flower is hand punched using a punch I've had for ages.
Rounded it off with a twine bow and some black rhinestones.

That's it!!!   Must admit I'm really having fun experimenting with my watercolour paints!!

Have to be off to give hubby and the boys a helping hand with the Feta cheese and sundried tomato beef burgers we're having for supper!!!

Thanks for popping in!!
Keep well!!
Kind regards

I'd say that you have mastered the watercolor paint technique!

I adore the funky diagonal diamond design that you have created! Nice touch with a bit of glitter here & there! And of course, your sproinky bow is the best!
