This week's CAS challenge over at SCS is "Memories" - interpreted any way we like.

I'm interpreting memories in a couple of ways - my sentiments talk about memories and my flower stamp is from the first SU stamp set I bought way back when I started stamping so brings back memories of the beginning of my cardmaking. 

I did two variations:

The images are watercoloured and a bit of watered down paint is splattered around. 
The first card is die cut with a stitched square, embellished with a few pearls, and popped the panel up on fun foam. 
The second card has some yellow glitter glue added to the flower centres and is embellished with some sequins.  I framed the image with a die cut square that I sponged with Distress Iced Spruce.
I'll link up the first one with CAS Watercolour (flowers) and the second with CAS Mix Up (splattering, stamping, watercolouring, die cutting, and sponging).

  1. So elegant, so gentle and so perfect x

  2. Both are so beautiful, Susan. Your watercolouring skills really show with both these cards. Love the first with the flowers providing all the colour and the gold embellishments. The second is gorgeous with the pretty flowers and framed perfectly with sponged colour. xx

  3. Two lovely designs Susan! Beautiful soft watercoloring on your blooms - and lovely sentiments on both! Julia xx

  4. Both are such sweet flower sprays, Susan! And the watercoloring is beautiful! I love the different backgrounds and bit of splatter!

  5. Both cards are beautiful Susan, with the soft, delicate watercoloring. I still fear watercoloring. Water has a mind of it's own. Love your framing too.

  6. Susan both cards are gorgeous. I love the delicate flowers and your watercolouring is perfect.


Thanks for leaving me a message! I love hearing from you.
