FMS#221



Hi, everyone!!!!!


Hubby and I have just come back from our walk after supper!!!  We had a very, very hot day in George today and at the moment it's lovely, but still hot and humid outside!!!

Quick post for my Freshly Made Sketches card:    The sketch:

endless possibilities!!!!

My card:




The watercoloured effect I got by spritzing my cs with water and then stamping with my MFT ink.
Flower and leaves stamps from MFT.


That will be it for now!!!!


Thanks for popping in - always a pleasure having you here!!!!

Het lijkt me toch zo vreemd om het zo warm te hebben in januari. Maar jij zult het wel gek vinden dat wij klagen over kou, wind, regen, soms vorst en sneeuw..
Je kaartje is werkelijk prachtig! Hoe heb je het weer bedacht!
Lieve groetjes,
GerJanne

Prachtig Petra, wat een leuk effect geeft dat. Ik vind het sentiment ook geweldig mooi!
Hier inderdaad weer een harde wind vandaag en veel te warm voor januari, nee echt winteren wil het niet hier. Het is gewoon één lange herfstperiode eigenlijk en het voorjaar is nog ver weg..

Fijne avond,
groetjes Thea

Beautifully soft & elegant! I love, love, love the smaller inlaid rectangle and how perfectly the horizontal "love" sentiment anchors the panels and stunning water colored images (adore these colors!)

MaryH said...

A thoroughly gorgeous watercolor look to this pretty flower. But the card design is awesome...and really shows off this wonderful image. Oh I DO like this inset design you've done. Just beautiful ... with the sentiment over both pieces. TFS

Team Clark said...

Absolutely lovely! I am so drawn to your clean designs, though my own are super messy and grungy! Love the soft flowers and the white on white sentiment! <3
