Delightful Dahlias

Hey there! I'm finding it difficult to craft yet again. It's very close to hand-over for our beach house and my mind is far too full of everything I need to do, to be able to sit down and create. So in the meantime, I'll try to share a few cards I did at the recent Retreat and some I have finished off from my 'incomplete' stash.

I actually stamped this image a few times in different inks on different cardstock. This is my favourite result.
The card is Canson Acrylic, I stamped with Versafine Black and clear embossed. I coloured with a mix of Zig CCRB markers and Daniel Smith Watercolour.

Stamp: WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquet - Dahlia
Dies: MFT Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle; SSS Hand Lettered Greetings

I'm entering this in the following challenges:-

  2. Beautifully painted dahlias, Jenny! I love the look of the acrylic paper! It has such a lovely texture! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Watercolour!

    1. Thanks Maxine. It's actually a rebuild of our house in Queenscliff Vic, so it's exciting to be able to decorate it etc.

  5. Beautiful! Love the way you finished it off and created the card.

  6. What a pretty watercoloured flower and I love the simple framing and die cut sentiment!
