CASology #96 (Flower), Viva la Verve May Colours (Aqua, Grey, Yellow), Stamplorations May (Stamps and Flowers), SSS Monday 26/5 (Botanicals)

Over the last few weeks, I’ve filled both of our village recycling bins with card rejects … you know, the large ones on wheels … yep, to overflowing.  Challenges have been and gone … and I’ve heard nothing from Monsieur Mojo … not even so much as a postcard.  So I’ve taken a deep breath and made a card without him …

CASology 96, VLV May Colours, Stamplorations May, SSSM 26-5

I drew a black line down the base card, masked off the right hand side and stamped the ranunculus (from Stampendous) in grey.  The flowers were loosely watercoloured and had a touch of Wink of Stella added to the centres.  The sentiment was made with words from Clearly Besotted’s A Little Sentimental and the ‘beautiful’ is from Technique Tuesday … it too has been Wink of Stella’d.  A simple little one layer card with no assistance from Monsieur M … I’m feeling proud!  In case you’re wondering about aqua coloured ranunculus (which granted, are unusual), try a google search … they’re there!

These are the challenges I’m joining in with …
