I colored the little Toucan Image (stamp from The Alley Way Stamp = Tropical Hideaway) with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor in green and orange.

The Background I punched some circle and use my distressed ink sponged it in orange and green.

Then I stamped also my "old" (because at that time I never like having flower stamp LOL)  but "just bought" (now I need flower stamp *grinz*)  HERO ARTS Poppies stamp set and colored with this two colors from Kuretake Watercolor set (see the color blended it self ...I love this Watercolor set so much :) )




I try to follow the color as much as I can: (I am sorry with the Photo at night... its not so perfect)




I made the sentiment tag by my self by cutting the green and colored (pink) paper and stamped Happy and Spring:






I choose also the tiny dots sent from Vicki in USA...dear Vicki many many thanks for this sweet and cute tiny dots from SU :) I love it much :) 




I am not experted at coloring with water color and never try it before but this Kuretake Ganzai Tambi Watercolor set really help me much :) you can believe me...that I was not giving any effort to colored this poppies flowers.

Get well Soon Card, Manly Birthday Card and an Easter Card


I need a GET WELL SOON Cad..I think this cute Monster Image from Create a Smile can make someone smile :) also I choose him and colored with my Japanese Watercolor set, I choose the orange color.




I choosed the Polkadot Stencil and mixed the orange distressed ink with the Embossing paste and put on the card. THIS IS MY FIRST TRIAL and dont complain please cause the embossing paste was not enough for make a thick surface also my surface a bit smooth than I expected.







I love to used the banner stamp from SU and did stamp it with orange Ink. The Sentiment (from Crete a Smile too) also embossed with Ink Embossing powder.




I really wish the recipient feel more better soon and can smile a bit with this card :)
