Weekend colouring

We spent the weekend at our friend's place at Mangawhai Heads.  I took along some Copics, watercolour paint palette and my Zig Markers and spend some time colouring .. did a few stamped images, made some watercoloured backgrounds and generally had a fun few hours both Saturday and Sunday.

This evening I made up one of the watercolour panels with stamping and colouring into a card

The background was a colour wash of watercolour paints.  Once it dried, I stamped the Lily (from Stampendous) and then used my Zig Markers to colour the image.  I love how you can get such vibrant colours with using the markers with only a little water.   This card is for my NZ Technique swap... theme is Spring and technique is stitching.  My stitching is faux - I used a MFT die to cut out the panel and then used a silver gel pen to do some faux stitching along the die cut stitched line.  Added some texture with an embossing folder to my base card.  The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter. 

 These are a couple of the other bits of colouring I did.   Still to make up into cards.  The bottom one has had a few added bits of colour since I took the photo.  This will be hubby's birthday card for Friday.  

And I'm finishing with a picture I took of some visitors to the house on Sat evening.

Mama Duck and 11 midsized ducklings came waddling across the lawn to the window.  The ducklings then pecked on the window while Mama looked on.  She then called them and the waddled around the back of the house to the other ranch slider then off to the wetland beside the property.

Thanks for stopping by.
