An little note to say!

Happy Friday my crafty friends,

My card today was inspired by both new challenge photo and the colours at Calling All Sistahs Encouragement Challenge. I used a general sentiment here as it is always good to have cards like this ready for when some one needs a little helping hand or touch of encouragement and love.



As soon as I saw the photo I thought water colouring would work really well with this. I had no ideas straight away so decided to just water colour a panel of card using the colour palette they gave us, to give an ombre look. I left this for a while so I could muse on ideas! (see the panel below). I then embossed and die cut some flowers and leaves from the CAS-ual Friday Pretty Posies set. I then used the CAS-ual Fridays Fri-Dies to cut a tag from my water colour panel and another tag from a piece of vellum with some autumn coloured felt running through it (thank you Jill for this vellum!)

It took me a while to come up with this design but I do love how it looks.

Here is my ombre water colour panel as it dries on a paper towel!



Have a fun Friday x

I will enter this into:

Calling All Sistahs-encouragement challenge
CAS Mix It Up Card Challenge-September-see my watercolour wash above and I used heat embossing as my choice and the stamping for the sentiment.
