Hey all,

 So excited to be able to make a card and share today.  I have not been able to craft for almost a month because I was away in India. I lost my father to Interstitial Lung Disease. It took a while for me to get back to normal routine.  So sitting down this morning to watercolour and make a card has been very relaxing and therapeutic.

This is a quick post to share a watercolour card using Simon Says Stamp Dancing Fruits and Big Greetings 1 stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp One of a Kind release.

I used masking technique to stamp, mask and stamp the images into a cluster using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and mini MISTI. Then I used Zig clean colour brush pens to colour my images and background. I used Bristol paper here. I then used one of the brown colours to spatter on the panel. I trimmed the panel, roughed the edges and adhered on a kraft card base using foam adhesives. I also wrapped natural twine into a bow on the panel. Then used matt brown enamel dots to embellish. The sentiment is from Big Greetings 1 stamp set which I simply stamp on a strip of the Bristol paper I cut from the main panel, roughed the edges and adhered using foam adhesive. Here is a closeup.

Here are all the supplies I used to make this card.

Here is a long pin for you to add to your Pinterest Board.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
