More Watercolour Flowers

Inspired by the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge, I've been trying to make cards using these colours:

I made a couple of cards which didn't turn out very well, so I'm going to keep them hidden! But I'm quite pleased with how this one turned out, so I'm entering it into the challenge:

I get a bit obsessed with square cards, so I tried one as a 5x7 card as well.

I'm entering this one in the following challemges:
Inkspirational challenge: 'Purple'
Allsorts challenge: 'Happy Birthday'
Cupcake Inspirations: 'Bugs & Butterflies'

I love this stamp, and was having fun using the water brush, so I made a couple more, but in deep red.

I'm entering this one in the Friday Mashup challenge: 'Butterflies'

I'm entering this last one in the following challenges:

Sorry, I ate your chocolates...

Made a couple of new cards, on the theme of eating the chocolates you have bought as a present... Does anyone else have this problem?

Anyway, here are the apologetic cards, using digistamps by From the Heart:

I'm entering this first one in the Crafty Sentiments: 'Anything Goes' challenge

This one was inspired by the colours in the Color Throwdown challenge:

Blue, Green & Grey

I love the colours in the Cupcake Inspirations challenge, here:

I've made a couple of versions of a card using these colours, and am entering this first one into the challenge. I stamped the image with grey ink (Watering Can Archival Ink) onto watercolour paper, then coloured using a water brush and Andirondack inks Meadow, Sunshine Yellow (to soften the green a little) and Sail Boat Blue. I matted the image onto another square of watercolour paper, painted green, and then added that to folded grey card. I added the butterflies to give it a little bit of depth.

Favourite Flower Stamp

Hi! Here's another card I made today:

I made this one for the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge: 'Blossom' by masking the squares and stamping one of my favourite flower stamps into the squares.

I coloured it using the beautiful colour combination at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:

Butterflies & Blossoms

I still haven't got the CAS Colours and Sketches sketch out of my system, and have made some more cards with it. Here's the sketch again:

I'm entering the card below in the CAS Colours and Sketches - it's their own fault that they're getting 2 entries from me. They shouldn't have made the sketch so annoyingly addictive.

I'm also entering this in the Just Us Girls challengeI love this colour combination! I think I might try making some more cards with these colours :)

There's a challenge over at Tip Top Tuesday, and the theme is 'Animals'. So I've been busy making cards, featuring cats and bears. Here are a few pics:
