Be Still

'Be Still'

Grungy Monday 08 has encouraged me to explore yet another new technique... Tim Holtz' Brushless Watercolour... I had read about it and loved the effect, but hadn't actually ever got around to trying it!  So here's my first go at brushless watercolour... 

The Paper Play challenge this week is Blossoms & Blooms and I've handmade the flower in the bottom corner of this card.  This is a new challenge site to me - yay!

I've kept the embellishing for this card very simple and neutral.  I plan to play around with this technique a whole lot more - it's so easy and a lot of fun!

Your embellishment are perfect for the beautiful stamping. The little flower is so cool (how did you do that?) and the textures with all the different materials are delicious.
