Hero Arts Scramble and Virginia's View challenge#1

I made this card in last Saturday's Hero Arts scramble and thought it would fit in nicely with Virginia Lu's watercolor challenge.

Somehow the colors turned out a bit draber than I thought, so I made it into a sympathy card. Unfortunately every once in a while I need one.

All stamps are Hero Arts. The sentiment is heat embossed in black.

It also fits the One Layer Simplicity challenge - just add water

I don't know about drab but maybe smoky or dreamy which is what your card is, Virginia!

Hi Cornelia
Definitely not drab, subtle and subdued so ideal for a sadder occasion.
Best wishes.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
