Clean And Simple with Copic Watercolouring

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
I apologise for not getting around to you all, but have been a little busy sorting out the Winter Wonderland Winners, if you have not spotted the 22 winners post yet then pop over and take a look.  

I have had a lovely weekend, I spent yesterday afternoon with a really good crafting friend, Sam from Bugger Buggers Blog, Samski. We had a great chat and this is one of the creations that came out of it.
Now if you know me well, I am not very good at these clean and simple cards, I struggle to restrain myself.  This card is made from a Woodware sentiment and a scroll from Crafty Individuals.  The stamp has been coloured with two copics and then I have used one of my new learnt techniques to create a watercolour effect.  This is a one layer card, very simple and really quick to create.

I would like to welcome my  new follower Ans and to say thank you to my wonderful visitors that leave such inspirational comments, love them and appreciate them all.

I would like to enter this quickie into the following challenges
Dream Valley Challenges - Stamp Something
Paper Sundaes - Sentiments from the heart
Stampin Sisters in Christ - Try a new technique
Cupcake Inspirations - photo inspirational - I chose the white and purple/lilac
CES - Clean and Simple
Our Daily Bread Designs - Sentiments Only
Divas by Design - Florals

enjoy the rest of your evening
