Always Flowers

Gosh, is it Friday already?
Am I ready for the weekend?  Well, sort of .....

I recently made this card to accompany an ATCoin swap arrive at its destination safely.
A simple stamped design on white card,
coloured with Inktense watercolour blocks and finished with dots of a co-ordinating Gelly Roll pen.

I like to make two ATCoins for a swap, although only one will be sent;
that way if the first goes astray, I have another ready in the wings to replace it.

Sometimes it's hard to choose which one to send and which to keep.  
As these were both coloured with water colours, the shading on the flowers isn't quite the same.

I added dots of gold Liquid Pearls to the centres of each flower for a little bit of extra dimension.

Thank you for coming back today, and for your encouraging comments.
They always put a smile on my face.

Happy Crafting!


  1. I love your C&S one-layer card, Helen. In general, they allow the focal stamp to be the focus without competing with other elements. Some might argue, but I think C&S cards demand crisp white paper...well done! Genius idea to make TWO ATCoins! And these are lovely! You are becoming an enabler (of sorts) as I just added gold Liquid Pearls to my crafty supplies list!!! You are certainly keeping busy, my friend!

  2. The colours are very crisp, fresh I too like the white background leaving the focal point. Well done

  3. So pretty ! I am sure the receiver will be chuffed with them !
