March CCC - a card for Lizzy

I was really on the ball this month with my CCC card (I'm sure you all know about Deborah's CCC - make a card and sent it someone and get one back)  My card winged it's way to Lizzy in Australia.

March included a sketch, a colour scheme and theme's of Easter  or  Trees  or  Friendship plus a product - watercolour paper.

I sort of followed the sketch, used the Friendship theme and watercolour paper...


My background was made with a faux letterpress technique.  I inked up my embossing folder with inks and pressed it with water colour in it.  I just pressed it with my hands and not through the Cuttlebug.  I then used the distress inks to sponge on colour.   My butterfly is also die cut from watercoloured paper.   My sentiment is from Winnie & Walter.

I'm watching the Cricket World Cup Semi finals tonight.  New Zealand are playing South Africa.  We are chasing a total of 298 and are not doing too bad... but it will be a close game and I'm hoping we will win.  I'm not sure I will stay up till the end as there's still a couple more hours to go.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stunning Dawn love your use of the faux letterpress technique - I recognised it as your work immediately when scrolling through my feed.
That was a cliff hanger of a game - we stayed up and watched!! :-)
Blessings
