Twofer One Post

Since I had already done one post today I decided to add these two cards together and hope I don't decide they could go to the same challenge.
This first one I love.....cause its flowers and white embossing and watercolour and fussy cutting and I just fell in love with it as it came together.
The flowers are from Kylie from Happy Little Stampers in Australia. So that means for those using the American dollar or UK pound this set which is called Doodle Flowers is $20 in Australia so only $15.30 American and 11 pound UK (sorry couldn't find the symbol on my mac for pound lol). I don't sell them or get commission just think they are so pretty and easy to colour.



I watercoloured with my zigs bringing in the colours for each flower. I did two pinks one light and one with dark, they are pink and not as red as they look here.

 For the stems I borrowed stems from my Winnie and Walter floral set then stamped with lemonade distress ink and coloured with copics. Also did the grass with copics.


I did this card initially through the wonderful inspiration from the 


This card is so pretty, I love the stand alone flower and the two tones of  colour and of course the beautiful pink colours. I tried one flower but it wasn't working I wanted that contrast of colour and thats why the second flower is nearly invisible there, I wanted that change in pink to give the two different main colours, the beauty of the pink. 

Because the flowers were fussy cut and layered I decide no bling was needed. Hope you like it.




 This next card was one I had to do a bit of thinking about.


I wanted to join in with the


Then I remembered this stamp from my 12 Days to Christmas stamp set.



Love him, my cat in the diamond ring and makes a perfect 'different engagement card'.
Coloured the ring in with my 'gold' gel pen and the diamond with my silver glitter pen and the """" bits with silver gel pen.



Then I added the swirly loop from a Papertrey stamp set. When I coloured the cat I did him with a combination of copics and pencils and made the dot of his eyes a bit heavier and also so they look crossed, problem is he's smiling so he doesn't look too crosseyed. Added the sentiment 'Woohooo! to the front and inside ' Congratulations on your Engagement.


Additional Challenges:


Flowers are HLS products.


Woohooo Engagement card.


the watercoloured flowers.




The watercoloured flowers, my favourite way to colour
is Zigs and water.
