I’ve used one of my all-time favourite Hero Arts stamp sets, Delicate Blossoms.  Poppies are one of my favourite flowers but I’ve never been able to get them to grow in my garden.  When I see them in other people’s gardens I get so jealous!  I used my Kuretake water colours – I love them so much! – the pigment is SO intense!  So I hope you can join us this week at the Wednesday Challenge – hoping to see lots of bright and cheery cards to chase away those grey skies!

 
You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in
No backlinking allowed, Only 5 new creations will be eligible in the prize draw

I recently picked up a stunning set of watercolours from Simon Says Stamp – the Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36 colour set.  WOW – they are SO pretty to look at, I just fell in love with them.  What I really liked about this set is the addition of the metallics and pearl palettes – so lovely.  A new addition to my stamp collection is the Altenew Persian Motifs set – they are screaming to be water coloured so that’s what I did!!
