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.
