I am signed up for Jennifer McGuire's new Online Card Class - Watercolor for Cardmakers - which starts 5 May.  There is a pre-class gallery so decided to give that a try, plus do it in yellow for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
The sunflower stamp is probably one of the first stamps I ever bought from Hero Arts.  I smooshed antique linen distress ink on an acrylic block with lots of water to make the background for the tag.  Stamped and embossed the sunflower.  I used gelatos and water to color the sunflower.  Put the tag to the side (although that was hard for me to do - have to get out of the box sometime!!!) and not too sure I like it. 

Stamps: HA; Wplus9
Inks: Ranger distress
Other: Doodlebug twine; Ranger liquid platinum embossing powder

Thanks for visiting and your kind comments.  Betty


  1. I like your offset tag! I am signed up to the Watercolour class too and am looking forward to it :) Love the vibrant colour you have created with your gelatos.

  2. This is so elegant, Betty! I love how you created the background on your tag, and your sunflower is just beautiful!

  3. Beautiful CAS design with the tag as your pop of yellow! Thanks for playing along with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Mellow Yellow!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave comments - they make my day!
