Helloooo! I'm back in blogland after nearly a month in Australia meeting my new (first) grandchild, and helping his mum get on top of things after a rough first three months. You won't have missed me, because of all my scheduled posts, though.
On my second day in, I went to a craft show with Lyndal (jet lag, what jet lag??) and bought some lovely stamps and dies from an Australian company, Paper Rose, and couldn't wait to play with them when I got back.
And then I saw that Paper Rose are featuring in Simon Says STAMPtember, so I had to play along!
After I'd cut the leaves, flowers and nuts I watercoloured them with a combination of Zigs and Altenew brush pens.
The background is a combination of mopped-up inks and PaperArtsy Infusions with a splattering of Gansai Tambi white gold, and lamp black watercolour. The sentiment is from a magazine freebie.

And if you've made it all the way to the end, here's a pic of River and me having some fun.
