Watercolour Daydream & Vintage Blog Candy

I'm keeping to the watercolour theme and showcasing the 2nd card but this time with a Faye Flower in yellow.
Soft and dreamy the stamp is by Stampin Up inked in teal ink the blended with a water brush to soften the image, sponged edges of the pastel lemon card, pearls, punched leaves and a Faye Flower and then a bit of love to bring it all together.
AesaLina Compton from Pixel Petals is offering a $10 voucher to spend in her shop all you have to do is comment on my cards yesterday (Tuesday) and today (Wednesday) and tell me what you like best from her shop and I will pick a winner on Thursday


Isn't the Faye flower in yellow really dreamy?



Good Luck everyone.

Oh! jak another gorgeous card & I do love the way the stamped image is so soft & muted. The faye flower & punched edges finish it off to perfection.
I have been on the pixie petals web site & although I think everything is fab, If I have to pick & do think the faye flowers do it for me.

Another stunning card, and yes I have to agree that that flower is so beautiful. My fav has to be the love buttons over at the store.

Another card in these lovely pastel colours Jak and I just love the 'dreamy' look to this one
What a hard choice to select a favourite from Pixel Petals!
The dyed lace and crocheted flowers are lovely, but those vintage buttons have definitely found a special place in my heart.

Beautiful artwork; beautiful card! And today from the shop, I like the bright colours of the pixiepetals. There is a really vibrant orange one which would go so well with the citrus bitty bloom I liked yesterday from the vintage collection. Warmest wishes, Lesley

Jak this is lovely and the colours so soft and suptle, great image too,

Looked at Pixie Petal shop yesterday and I think I would still go with the lace buttons although everything about the shop is nice

JennyH said...

Oh - yet another piece of gorgeousness. Just wish I had your eye for these creations - but at least the rest of us can share the finished results. After seeing the Faye flower in situ, think I would have to say that is my favourite to-day. Please keep sharing these treasures with us. JennyH

Michelle said...

Jak - this is totally stunning. I mean I ran around the office dragging people into my office to look at it. I am so going home today to try that technique. I hope I can do it half as well.

As for what I like best - probably still the vintage ribbon - it's purely lovely and so soft.

What a wonderful card once again Jak. I just love the soft look on it.
As I said yesterday, I just love her lace, but also the buttons are really really awesome, and I would sure love to have some of those to put on my cards as well. They´re soo gorgeous. In fact all I saw on that site was worth looking at more than once, that´s for sure. Great site, thanks sooo much for sharing it.
Big hugs Maryann
