A very Happy Friday my crafty friends,

The other day I told you about a new challenge site I had come across, Sovushka Slavia and today I have a card for their latest CASE challenge.

I have combined this with the 'sunset' colour challenge at Less is More

The die I have cut from another attempt of painting a sunset freehand-if you look closely at the 'LO' you will see my moon! I sponged on a bit of extra orange to the die as the freehand sunset was a bit too pale to stand out against the ivory.

I got the idea for the layout from the CASE card by Vanessa at Sovushka Slavia. Here is her card:

I went with the bold die and instead of flowers behind the die I used a kiss stamp.

Enjoy your day x


  1. Thanks for playing along at LIM again Sandie! What a clever girl watercolouring your own fantastic sunset. Love how you got the moon there in the die cut too. That's one fabulous kiss stamp - where is that from? Sarah x

  2. Love that kiss stamp, looks like you just blotted your lips on the panel!
    Keep going with the w/c, it is tricky, I'm so impressed by those that can do it. My only tip is that you need plenty of water and the paint always dries so much paler than you think. x

  3. Such a lovely card Sandie! Love those lips there ;)

  4. Sandie, this is so beautiful and well-balanced! Love that you replaced the die-cut flower with a kiss stamp and it goes so well together with the bold Love die-cut. Thanks for playing along at Sovushka Slavia CASEing. -Ksenija xx

  5. Sandie, your card is gorgeous! The purple kiss, the pretty 'love die cut...I'm crushing all over this! Thanks for sharing the 'new to you' challenge...going for a look!

  6. You have been bussy! Love the mouth-stamp and love the summercolours on the sentiment! Hugs, Gerrina

  7. Fabulous card, Sandie. An ingenious combination of the challenges.
