Watercolour Card & Vintage Button & Blog Candy

Soft and beautiful, today's card is made with the Penny black dandelion stamp inked then spritzed with water to give the watercolour effect.

Check out the vintage button, very unique and very beautiful the maker of the button has her own shop and i have another card with her beautiful flowers planned for tomorrow.

Attention to detail...


A vintage button, this is a hand made button made by a very clever lady who has all sorts of clever hand made items in her shop, her name is AesaLina Compton and her shop is pixiepetals.etsy.com

A punched flower kissed with a bit of aqua ink.



Good luck everyone

Fab card and the button is just exquisite. Just had a wander round Pixie Petals and have to admit that out of all the stock on offer I could spend a fortune in the bitty blooms section.

Oh Jak - just when I think your cards can't get any more gorgeous, they do!! The colour is gorgeous and the design is beautiful. And what a wonderful link, and how to choose a favourite??? Think it would have to be the Bitty blooms lovely lace, but wouldn't it be exciting to receive any of them?? Thank you so much for sharing your stunning creations, JennyH.

Stunning card Jak. Everything about it shouts style. I do love the use of the nesties for the apperture & then the subtle colours of the stamping & the embellishments finish it so well. Another fab winner there.
It is such a simple card & that button... well just awesome. I have looked at the website & she has so many lovely things for sale I wouldn't know where to begin.
