My first DT card of 2017

Hi first DT card of 2017!!

Today is my last day before going back to work tomorrow s I made a point of spending most of the day crafting!

I bought this stamp just before Christmas as I thought it was quite versatile and I could do lots with it...I haven't used all of the stamps in the set only the main one, still practising with the others.

The stamp is from Concorde and 9th and is called Hello Lovely.  I stamped onto watercolour card and white embossed.  I coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir Aquablend pencils, I started with the lighter shades and then gradually added until I got the shade I wanted...I wanted it to look quite soft.

I stamped some splodges and the sentiment which are from the same set and then added a few sequins to finish.

Pop over to the Spectrum Noir Blog for more inspiration.

I love this Fi. A truly gorgeous creation. I am LOVING the watercolouring over white embossing you've been doing of late. Stunning images, beautiful colours and so perfectly set up by your doodled frames and CAS designs. Popping in to wish you a fabulous 2017. Big hugs, Wends xoxo

Wow, this is lovely, Fiona! What a beautiful stamp. I actually had a chance to play with it recently, and think it's a must have. You brought the florals to life with your beautiful shading, and colors. So happy you played along at HLS Watercolor Challenge!
