Just for the fun of it ...

Morning friends I'm here to play along with a couple of challenges
and at the same time I couldn't wait to crack open this brand new set
from Happy Little Stampers, which I received at the end of last week!!!

I've been busy helping my parents move house so my crafting really has
been non-existent but I found a teeny play time slot and had to work with this 
newly released and gorgeous Doodled Flowers set.

On a piece of watercolour card stock I stamped, masked and heat-embossed 
the images from the set before watercolouring with Distress Inks.
I've no idea why I selected these colours but they are vibrant and some of 
my favourites: Peacock Feathers, Wild Honey and Abandoned Coral; Oh and
a touch of Spiced Marmalade to accent the centres and details. The sentiment
is from the same set and I've edged the panel using a homespun die from
My Favourite Things ... just because it's my new favourite die!!! 

I'd like to link this one up at a few challenges:

Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes (using their products)
Of course I had to stop there!

Addicted to Stamps & More - Anything Goes

Timeout Challenges - CASE the Guest Designer with your own twist.
So I was inspired by the floral images which are so delicately watercoloured
and that was my starting point but I've twisted it with vibrant colours. I'm hoping
my dotty blooms will represent the dotty panels on Marjan's card, below. 

Thanks for calling by to visit today and I'll be back
with a few more posts later in the week!

Off to catch up on your creations now!
