Happy New Year

Well 2016 is done and dusted and I look forward to 2017 being a peaceful and exciting year! Yes I think exciting can still be peaceful!  I'm looking forward to the completion of our house at Queenscliff so that we can spend more time getting away from the city. I'm also looking forward to more travels and visits from overseas relatives.  I hope that this year brings you everything you wish for!

Today I'm sharing a card that I began a while ago for my Niece who is getting married this year. This is just an experiment - I will be working on improving it.

I printed the diamond and sentiment on my Laser printer and then added the foil with my Minc machine. Then I used Zig CCRB markers and a small amount of water to colour the diamond.
To had some shimmer, I used Wink of Stellar.

I would have preferred to use watercolour paper, but it was to thick for the printer.

I am entering this in the HLS Watercolour Challenge - Anything Goes ( I hope it's ok that there is no stamping) and the Simon Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes


  1. Jenny, I think it turned out beautifully. Your niece will love it! I am waiting for my Zig pens to arrive - I can't wait to try them! Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers xx

  2. Absolutely beautiful, Jenny! If this needs improvement, I can't wait to see the final version!

  3. Stunning Jenny, love the look and the foiling. Just a thought sometimes you can feed your paper that is thicker through a secondary slot on printers. On mine I open the back and can feed the paper through there. Also change the settings for paper so the printer is aware you are feeding thicker paper will help.

  4. Beautiful, Jenny! Thanks for playing along at HLS Watercolor Challenge!

  5. Gorgeous CAS card Jenny! The colours are so pretty.

  6. Ummm, words are not coming, have to pick my jaw off the floor! Gorgeous? Not strong enough. A diamond beyond beauty. Yep, that's it! Wow, Jenny. What a lovely card this is! Your lucky niece needs to frame her aunt's creation, and forget the gift. Thank's so much for joining in on HLS' very 1st challenge!

  7. Brilliant job with the water colouring and love the colours you used too. Ziggies are so fabulous to colour with and love how you blended to the two colours on the top of your diamond. Thank you so much for joining us at Happy Little Stampers!!
