At the time the new Morgan Fitsimmons CD has been released by Crafters Companion, and it contained a whole host of beautiful images, along with lots of lovely backing paper.
These days, now that I have spread my own wings a bit, I think I would print this on to water colour card and give it a go with Spectrum Aquas, Sparkles or even good old regular water colour paints.
Anyhow, I thought it was worth a share as these images are really quite special!
Thanks for visiting today.

I have gone with a digital image from the recently reduced Little Dudes, and I have plumped for Cool Dude this time as I thought he would make a great card for a teenager.
Amazingly all the papers that you see and the sentiment all come as part of the set, so it was really easy to put this card together, and doing a little bit of colouring with water colour pencils.
Thanks so much for visiting today.

How lovely to see them again, for more inspiration - and a lovely new colouring medium in the form of Startlight paints and waxes too......those are definitely on my crafty wish list!!
Here's a card I made (not for the show this time) using the lovely anemone and aqua pens.
I stamped and embossed the image in white, which not only makes a great effect but, also makes it really easy to colour the image as you can't go outside of the lines.
I think it is one of my favourite techniques for water colour application.
The fabulous large sentiment comes with the daisies set from this release, and as you can see the sentiments are all interchangeable with the various images.
Can you see the little sparkly bits? They are tiny little pearl sequins from Tonic Nuvo and I totally love them. They are like mother of pearl and they have no holes in them - the are perfect for sprinkling and for shaker cards too. I will be devastated when I use my pot up...but luckily for me, there are literaly thousands of them in there, so thy will last me a while!!
Thanks for stopping by today.

I just loved this delicate little image, but even when printed for a 6 x 6 card, the detail proved to be too fine for my pens, so I decided to colour with pencils instead.
I loved the nice soft result that I got with this medium and I finished off by edging the card with some distress ink and then added texture with my ever faithful dotty stamp.
Thanks for visiting.
