Stamp Connection #2

Connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Tanja from Little Art Cottage and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 3rd Sunday of the month and this is our second transatlantic get-together!

Our requirements for this meet-up were:

Flowers & Watercolors

And here is my card:



I masked off a square on watercolor paper, stamped the flowers and then flicked on water color in green and yellow tones. Waited  for it to dry and then sponged lightly around the flowers to make the square stand out more. Added the sentiment. All stamps are by Unity from the set Insightful Meadows


                                                            



Now aren't you curious what Tanja did - I for sure are - lets go and visit her!

I am linking up with:

Unity challenge - see below
AAA cards challenge - Springtime
Naughty or Nice - in bloom
The Artistic Stamper - Flora and Fauna
GRAB A challenge blinkie for your blog :O))
   
----------------

And I have a second card to share:


I made that for the A Blog named Hero challenge - embossing. The color inspiration I got from the Stamping Royalty challenge - see picture below. I heat embossed that beautiful Hero Arts Starburst Lace stamp  with WOW gold embossing powder. Added an aqua watercolor wash and also water colored a strip in the same color. The die cut is by Lil Inkers. Some gold thread.


Also playing with showCASe your style - Thank You and Shopping our Stash - Lost and found - have not used that doily stamp in years.....
