I was actually making this card while on holiday in a holiday let. I had just taken a few items with me so I could make it... It was also pretty dark so my photos are not brilliant!

  1. White rectangular card blank
  2. Layer of watercolours background in some of the palette colours..
  3. Image printed on white card and painted with shimmery water colours - I am not sure if you can see the shimmer in the following picture.
  4. Stampin Up sentiment stamped with black Versafine on white card.
  5. Black penwork around all rectangles

Hope you will come and join us!!
