  1. This watercolor technique is not for the faint of heart! I am too much of a control freak and cannot see myself letting the water flow like you did, Therese! Love the look you achieved.

  2. Altenew’s floral stamps are out of this world – and this new BAF set is stunning! Oh dear! My wish list just got longer. Love your card inspiration!

  3. What a very simple but pretty card. I love watching your videos Theresa. Altenew has some very beautiful flower stamp sets. My favorites.

  4. Beautiful card with soft lovely colors!! It’s nice to see I’m not the only one who has to try every possible position before adhering their sentiment. Thanks for sharing that portion of your video. It made me smile 🙂

  5. I couldn’t wait to see what you created with this gorgeous set and the card is beautiful. I was not disappointed! 🙂

  6. Your videos are the best; I try to watch them all, and bookmark my favorites! Such a pretty card, Therese! Love this watercolor technique, and it’s one I’d like to try. The colors are perfect, too. Going to take a quick peek over at Altenew… xo Bev

  7. I always enjoy watching your video’s, you have such a fabulous talent , you make all your cards look so effortless, thank you for sharing another of your fantastic blog inspirations.

  8. I love purples and I love how you used water coloring to add color to the poppies on your card! Simply gorgeous and so sweet!

  9. Very pretty card. I love the soft watercolored poppy against the black dots on the white background. It’s just lovely. Thanks for sharing with us.

  10. Hi Therese. Love this gorgeous card with the oh so delicate colouring. Not fair!!!!! I’ve well and truly over-spent my budget and then Altenew bring out Poppies – one of my favourite flowers!!!! GRRRRRRRRR. Thanks so much for sharing this easy technique. I must try this with my other layering stamps – I’m not very adventurous so had never even thought of doing this. Even I should be able to manage this, hehehehe. TFS. Bev from Sydney.

  11. I always amazed at how you can turn a simple, clean design into something so elegant. I love this new BAF Poppy and your card is gorgeous.

  12. Once again, thanks for one of your great videos. It will be fun to try water coloring with this stamp set. Your card and its colors are just beautiful!

  13. Love your card; Love your technique! Thanks for letting the video run while your creative-genius was planning where to settle the sentiment! 😀

  14. Your card is gorgeous! I love the watercolor poppy! I don’t ever remember to try this technique but I have to try it sometime! This seems like the perfect stamp set to use it with! Thanks for the fantastic inspiration!

  15. You’re my kind of gal, Therese! Simple, easy, clean and gorgeous is the way to go. I love seeing even the pros do this sort of thing, because that helps remind me that I can “get away with” keeping it simple. Thanks for sharing this with us; it’s so soft and pretty.

  16. What a lovely effect, Therese … all dreamy and delicate … that delicious poppy looks wonderfully translucent! I did chuckle at the footage of the sentiment placement … oh how I can relate!! Hugs, Anita 🙂

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
