Let's Squash it - Nature and Watercolour - Take 2

 Hi there.  Thought I'd better do a card for the challenge at Let's Squash it... following the theme correctly 

So today I took some watercolour paper and embossed it with a Darice folder. 

After embossing I took my Altenew 36 pan watercolour pallette and took the aqua to add a wash of colour to the background.  I allowed it to dry and then added the light green for the leaves and yellow and orange for the daisies. I added some orange splatters.  Once it dried fully I added the sentiment from Couture Creations with Altenew Obsidian ink.   Added a few little black gems and it was done.

Today is my birthday and as I' still off on sick leave, it was great to spend some time in the craft room making this card.  I also tidied up a couple of my drawers.  I got a nice parcel delivered today from my son and daughter-in-law and grand daughter. 

Isn't it gorgeous.  I've eaten a couple of chocolates already.   And can't wait to have a hot bath and use the bath ball an the soap.  

Thanks for stopping by.
