Dotty Flower and Circles

I was very excited to receive some new stamps from Altenew and I couldn't wait to ink them up! Luckily I had an epiphany. I'll call it 'Faux Paper-Piecing'  and this card is the result...

I'll explain the steps I took in point form:-
*Make Negative and positive mask
*Stamp the flower on card
*Place mask over flower and stamp leaves
*Place negative mask over card & sponge yellow ink over flower
*Keep negative mask in place & stencil yellow dots
*Keep negative mask in place & stamp orange dots
*Stamp sentiment

The stamp set is Altenew Wallpaper Art and the dotty stamp is from Altenew.  Unfortunately I've lost the packaging for the stencil. 

I'm sharing this card at the following challenges:-

My next card was inspired by the theme at Simon Says Monday Challenge ..

I wanted to practise layering with my Daniel Smith Watercolours.   I used an old Prima Stamp set which has various sizes of circles and then moved the paint around with a wet brush quickly after stamping. 
I stamped the butterfly from Penny Black using the same paints and Zig Markers. 
The sentiment die is from Lawn Fawn. The Circle Stamps are actually stitched circles and you'll see them again soon in future cards. It's fun to get use out of old products

I'm sharing this card at the following challenges:-
Theme 'Were Going Around in Circles'

Here is one more card, inspired by CASology Challenge...

I sponged the clouds using Distress Inks and a home made stencil. The stamp set is CASual Fridays 'Some Bunny' and the images were coloured with Zig Markers.
