Happiest of birthdays to you - Creative with Stamps #37

Monday April 1, 2019
 
Hello and welcome back to my blog..
Creative with Stamps #37 has a new challenge.
PLUS it's our 3rd birthday over at CWS..
wow 3 years went by quite fast. 
Our theme for this month is BIRTHDAY card
 
Also we wont be having a mid month reminder.. so please come back often and enter your card if you haven't entered your quota per our rules.
 
note: CWS challenges do not have many "guidelines",
but please read and follow the few we do have to be eligible to win.
 
 I wanted to use a Simon says stamp that I got in one of their monthly kits last year.. I stamped the image on water color paper and painted the image and background with Mission Gold water color paints. I dried it with a heat gun and stamped the sentiment and re-stamped the image ... dang it wasn't all the way dry so the bottom leaves and part of the sentiment ran.. Hubby didn't see it till I pointed it out.. but of course I can see it. (I remember doing a x stitch piece many many years ago... and made one mistake.. each time I look at this beautiful piece I still see it..)  back to my card. I cut the piece down a little and added to an piece of blue card stock. I really love the look and was a lot of fun to create.
 
Challenges:
Simon Wednesday - anything goes
Work it Wednesday at Simon Says - spring flowers
As you like it - favorite med. and why (paints, I like the blending and way you can create the background and give different depths.)
Moving along with the times #94 - for a man

Beautiful floral card Billie.

Wonderful card, billie. I like the colors you used for the flowers. I know what you mean... you always see your little mistakes by yourself (without saying they wouldn't be recognized).

Creative greetings
