Showcased at Online Card Classes, and a Floral Background

Online Card Classes have launched their new website, and I'm thrilled to have one of my cards from the Watercolour for Cardmakers class featured on their gallery page!  You'll have to scroll all the way down the page to see - my card is bottom left.  My original post is here.

Bragging over, on to today's card.  The lovely Bev from Happy Dance made a gorgeous card for three challenges, and it prompted me to make my own version.  I am now the proud owner of some Altenew stamps, albeit freebies from a magazine.  The set contains a three-part layered rose, a three-part layered leaf, a rose die, a leaf die and some sentiments.


I stamped the middle rose and middle leaf stamps with Distress Inks (Pickled Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Peeled Paint) onto mixed media paper then spritzed lightly with water.  The bleed varied depending on the amount of water I was spritzing.  The birthday die-cut is a Winnie & Walter Cutaway, and the 'wishes' is from STAMPlorations Sentiment Builders: Love.

So, thanks to Bev, I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Colour Throwdown (why have I never played here before????)


Task For Two Tuesday - Make Your Own Background


and CAS(E) This Sketch (flip it, stretch it!)



I'm over at A Sprinkle of Imagination with another card today.  Here's a sneak peek:

The roses and leaves are beautiful and they shine on that notebook panel and pink base. This is a winner-winner chicken dinner if ever there was! Have a great week. Bev
