Saturday's auto post

Right now I hope to be enjoying myself on Anglesey with a bunch of friends, but I'd hate my poor blog to feel lonely so I'm hoping I've set this up properly to post while I'm away!

Here's a card I made for a challenge at the Happy Stampers North West stamping show a couple of years ago. I think the theme was just 'Spring' or maybe 'Spring Zing'; this was the first card where I ever used the colour combo of orange and lime, but I was really happy with how it came out. The colours are rather more vibrant in real life!

I used the brushless watercolour technique to stamp the lettering and flowers onto panels of white cardstock, using PaperArtsy alphas and Hero Arts floral stamps. (If you haven't come across brushless watercolour before, I'll cover it in a brief tutorial some time soon so keep checking back!) I also arranged orange and lime buttons into a flower on another panel of white card. These were all then mounted onto a square of orange cardstock which was in turn mounted onto a white base card.

Oh, and there's a new recipe on my other blog Melsh Recipes. It's for spinach and mushroom lasagne (which is much yummier than it might sound!)
