Flower Background Card and a Valentine Baby Card

A challenge if its calling you run to your crafting table..this time YES :) ..I run and I have directly an idea in my head....also here is  the card I made today:

I took my Stampin Up Old stamp I have ever bought from Vera in the USA and I have never used this since that time...this is the first time I inked this cute Stamp. I stamped many times on a white paper.

I choose these colors from my watercolor set and start to colored all the flower, not with a precision I want that the card looks like it colored by a little child :) here is the result:

The sentiment I stamped on a black paper and embossed it with orange embossing powder. For more attractive, I colored again one set of this flower and fussy cut and with double tape foam I add on the black strip.

I love the end result of this fast colored the Flower with water color I need 7 minute and total around 12 minute to finished this card :) yippiee...I like to make a fast and easy card..and my  new water color set really help me much by coloring this time... :)

One more Picture of my card:

This is the challenge that inspired me:

My second card base from this challenge at The Card Concept #27: LOVE, I choose CLEAN AND LAYERED STYLE(sdh a. p.)

This is the card I made with that color inspiration above:

I choose the similar soft pink, vibrant pink and red ink for the heart at the baby body. For the wood grain I put under the main image. I love the CAS idea on this card.

  9. Die Hintergrundkarte ist ja der Hammer!!! Eine super Idee hattest du, als du zum Basteltisch gehetzt bist.

    Schönes Wochenende,

  10. SUPER SWEET onesie card! I like how you painted the flowers on the first card Monica.
    Thanks for playing at The Card Concept!

  11. I love the flower background. do you use water color paper with those new paints you received from your DH?.. I don't use water color paper much even though I have it.. and I know some paints pill the paper leaving a rough texture if not using water color paper. I love the way you colored the flowers. Great just dabbing the paint on. Wonderful card. I like the baby onsey card great look. Fun cards.. Hugs my friend.

  12. Once again, you're showing us how perfect these water-colours are! Your husband chose a perfect gift for you! Your, so, so pretty! And the baby card: oh my goodness! Absolutely delightful set of onesies! Both you cards have arrived, my dear friend - mine came to my house while I was still with my mom, so my husband brought it with him when he came to pick me up. Your card for my mom arrived early this week. Both of us are DELIGHTED with our two cards...we're feeling very much loved, and quite spoiled to each have our own piece of art from you!
