Sketch time...

keeping it clean and simple and following the less is more sketch this week, here is my take on it

A simple retirement card for a friend - I simply stamped and embossed in platinum once on watercolour card and once on Vellum. I watercoloured the pink flower added the sentiment in grey to match the grey layer then cut the card with a stitched rectangle to look like a photo frame added the fussy cut vellum flower falling off the edge of the card and a few gold sequins...not very good at photographing my cards ...but...I think I might have done a bit better with this one haha!

my first try at watercolouring using a clear embossed stamp image. Loving this hydrangea stamp and I have tried to capture the delicate lavender pink shading some of ours have..I just added a few clear dewdrops, and a Vellum stamped tag hope you like.  I am entering into the aaa card challenge which is watercolour s and Case this Sketch

 It's been a while, but I now have some free time once more..lots going on including some special times with my grandchildren both abroad and here in the U.K. 

I've also actually made some inroad into cataloging my stamps and dies...they are mostly now neatly filed in a couple of great little wooden boxes  my husband made and painted for me......but what a job - so time consuming and I don't really have that many!.and  what a lot of changes too over at "Less is More", I still take a peek nearly every week. 

 This weeks challenge is perfect as I have 3 male cards to make for my brothers in law. And the theme this week made me think of this...Alphabets at Less is more challenge
