Handmade Hugs


Hello, It’s Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls and Sue has asked us to Splash something on our card. I went with the obvious splatter technique. But before I got to the fun part, I watercolored and used colored pencil on my Altenew flowers. I didn’t like the way the bottom of the card looked without the flower being grounded, so I added the extra strip of watercolored paper that I had trimmed off and the MS punch border.  I did a terrible job with the colored pencil and should have left the flower alone, but live and learn.  The splatters helped detour the eyes.  LOL  The sentiment is from MFT. Come check out all the different ways the team was inspired by this challenge.

  3. Love your splashes of color and I personally think your flowers are beautiful! Love how you finished it off with the strips and border across the bottom.

  4. I love your card – the design is perfect. That strip with the border really makes the whole card pop! Your splatter are just perfection – I always struggle with splatters, love yours! Great job!

  5. Such a lovely soft feminine card here Nancy. Love how you ‘grounded’ your pretty flowers and your tiny splashes are perfect. That punch is an oldie but a goodie eh!

  6. Your blue flowers are lovely, Nancy, and I love how you inked along the edge to match the green strip on the bottom.
