Sunday 10th February

Brrrr!  What a change from yesterday's almost spring-like weather....  no doggy walks today!
Plenty of craft time though, and here's what I made with Ryn's African Daisy...


I haven't made a pink card in ages, forgot how pretty a colour it is.  Yet again I made the background with Tombow pen scribbled onto watercolour paper, spritzed with water and sprinkled with salt.  I just love that effect - different every time!  The little message is from Lili of the valley's Christmas handwritten phrases set. The leaf die is a Magnolia Doohickey die.

A big hello and thank you to my new followers! xx

Hey Wendy, your card is great! I am sharing it on my Facebook page this morning. Great colouring on the flower and I love your choice of leaves! That salt technique is a lot of fun. I love that the result is always a surprize :)
