Watercolour Thank you
This card started as a card for the current Fusion challenge - I watercoloured a panel in pinks and yellows but couldn't figure out where the big black and turquoise element should come in (my brain is fried from all the end-of-school activities, but now that school is done, I'm hoping for more time and more creativity).
Anyway, I'm happy with this simple, pretty thank you (and now thinking I will use it for a set for the piano teacher). I started by watercolouring with Kuretake Gansai Tambi and cutting the smaller of the two Hero Arts flowers from that. I cut the larger flower from a white panel and inlaid the smaller one into the bigger one. I like the 'halo' effect. I finished the flower with a sparkly Doodlebug enamel dot and added a Simon Says Stamp sentiment.
Yesterday was Struan's 16th birthday. We spent the morning getting him his G-1 driving license (learner's permit). He's pretty happy about that!
