Happy Friday!

Time sure flew by this week. We're already on day 5 of my pairing up with Kelly. Today we're featuring Hero Arts Large Flowers. Like, I mention yesterday, I love flower image, but when it comes to actually using them, I often struggled.

I fall in love with this Hero Arts stamp from the moment I saw it. But, ever since I got it, I have a hard time creating card with it. It's quite a challenge to use this stamp. Well, I decided to go all tropical with it and experiment with the watercolor technique. Another entry for PC Gallery Idol.

The background is a piece of blue vellum that I stamped with woodgrain stamps (click on the pic to see larger pic and you can see the woodgrain). I do love the look of the vellum on this. Feels great to finally use this piece of vellum that I have had since 2003?? Yikes... Of all the crafting stuff I have, parting with papers is the hardest thing to do. Well, it didn't get wasted!

Friday also means new release day for A Day For Daisies and I get to play with this sweet little fairy. The challenge this week is to use pastel colors, but no pink! Since lately I seems to be into purple, I go ahead and use purple on this (hmm... actually the honest reason is this is the only pastel colors I have for my Copics). One of this day, I'll expand my Copic markers collection.The felt flower ribbon is from May Arts.

Since, I was on a roll yesterday, I have another card to share. I swear I don't have a fever! :) It just that I got this cute flower from Birdie Brown by Torico recently and been wanting to use it. I've been eyeing it for awhile and finally got it last week. Isn't this such a happy flower?

This card makes me smile, it just looks so cheerful. Okay, I reach my maximum for the day. :) Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you all have a great Friday.
