Day 1 of my long weekend

It's Queen's Birthday weekend here in NZ which means no work Monday.  we have come up to Mangawhai to our friends place.  being a three day weekend I brought some crafting supplies.  Micheal  generously set me up a table in the nook

I as the weather was not condusive to being outside I just played.  New stamps arrived on Friday just before we left so I had to play with them .  I got Floral Bliss from Simon Says Stamp and my first two cards use the bouquet stamp and some watercolouring.   I used different watercolour mediums on each one.

This one day a mixture of distress reinkers and stains plus Zig markers.  I added some distress Mica spray in Tarnished Brass and Brushed Pewter as my splatters.   my sentiment  was not planned to be where it is but when I was drying the splatters I scorched the card, so I gold embossed the sentiment from an Altenew set on a strip of black card. 

This second one I've used Pearlescent paints to colour so in a much softer colour pallette. This stamp set is so pretty. 

Next up is a card I've been thinking about for awhile.   It turned out almost as I envisaged.

I used MFT die cut to the window. I took the window and used some paints to colour and put it back into the die  before adding the little flowers from the Altenew set called Adore You. I coloured with green Copic and fussy cut. Then added the sentiment  on a thin strip of white card. 

And last up is a quick card I made with a Tim Holtz stencil, some yellow inks and a Stampin' Up! stamp and a freebie sentiment.

 All in all,  a great days  stamping,   Finished the day with friends sitting round the outdoor fire being serenaded with Irish songs.  

Thanks for stopping by.  More stamping happening today!
