As a little taster here are just a couple of photos.
and of course lots of oranges
This month Tim shared a fun watercolour effect using stencils. You can read all about it here and this is the tag he made.
I don't have his butterfly stamps and I decided that as we saw so many beautiful flowers in Seville that I would use flowers for my stamped images. 2 of the flower stamps I used are very old Papermania and the gorgeous rose is by Visible Image.
These are the Distress Ink colours I used and I also used Tim's Clockwork layering stencil.
I stamped out my flower images with Archival ink and then using my watercolour brushes I used the DIs to colour them with a sweeping technique Tim demonstrated.
and some close ups

I am hoping to try to catch up with my blog reading over the next few days. I hope you have all been well and for those of you in the UK that you are enjoying the pleasant settled weather. It makes so much difference to come home from holiday and be able to dry the mountain of washing outside. Billy has been our little shadow over the weekend, he is very pleased to be home to his garden too.
Bye for now,
