“Hat’s” Spring for you!


At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Lacy Sunshine as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Here’s Sugi’s Spring Blossom Dress by Lacy Sunshine Stamps.For my birthday recently I thought I’d treat myself to some decent watercolour pencils.After much deliberation and reading reviews I settled on some Faber-Castell Art Grip Aquarelle.Then I had to find them at the right price for me – LOL.I happened across a tin of 60 which had some pretty colours perfect for card making along with some suitable skin tones 🙂 Also included were some metallics!If you live in the UK I can recommend Crafty Arts for both price and delivery.(No connection to the company – just a very happy customer!) I did enjoy using these pencils and am pleased with the quality.Altho’ the results here aren’t too bad I still need a lot more practice with watercolouring,but with the image being so beautiful I probably get away with it – just!The rest of the card is kept quite simple with an embossed border on the kraft card base,a piece of patterned with a tear and a coordinating piece just peeking through and some pearls and ribbon from my stash that just happened to match each other perfectly 🙂 Finished off with a stamped sentiment and distressed edges.
