Pretty in Pink

Botanical Garden Altenew

WHOP WHOP it's the end of the week:-) Happy Friday everyone.  Another week has whizzed by and we're counting down the days (not weeks) until Harry heads off back to Uni for his third year.  Amazing!! 
For Stamptember I thought I'd share how to make these three cards 
Altenew Watercolor Palette
each decorated with water coloured floral sprays.  I used the Botanical Garden stamp set, coordinating dies and the new Water Colour Palette from Altenew.  I love colouring and, when I'm not working on paper based projects get out my pens/pencils and paints and colour.  I'm no expert but it definitely makes me happy :-).
In the video below I share how I coloured my flowers and built up each of the cards.  There's a full supply list for card below the video too.

Happy Friday everyone
If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!

As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.
