It was my Aunt's birthday about a week ago, and I missed it :( I spoke to her the day afterwards, and made her a card, but wish I'd sent one to arrive on time! My Aunt is very artistic and creative, so I'm always a bit nervous of sending her my cards. She makes beautiful teddy bears and sells them all over the world. It's a bit intimidating! Here is her website, and a couple of her creations:
Trying out a couple more masked panel cards with my new favourite stencil :) I think maybe the pale background works better than the deep blue. I think I need to try using cleaner / paler colours for the petals, too. I might try that tomorrow.

I've had a couple of those water brushes (the ones that you fill with water) for ages, but didn't really know what to do them. After seeing Heather Telford's post here, I had to try it!

I'm also using my new wink of stella gold pen - had to get one after seeing Heather's video :)
