Say It With Flowers

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend? Mine was quiet yesterday as my husband and son (who still lives at home) decided that they would go fishing. Something neither of them has done for a while now. It gave me time time to clear a little space and get my new Sheena Douglas stamps out. This is the card that I made using the rose stamp from the set. I stamped with a Spectrum Noir Finesse ink pad in black then coloured using the only Spectrum Noir Tri blend pen that I have, this was a free gift that was with something else that I had bought. I had not used these pens before and had not splashed out and bought them when they launched as I have so many others. However I have to say that I am quite impressed with the result and it does do what it says on the packet and they do all go together and blend. I found the sentiment stamp to be quite appropriate at the moment.

I'm off now to join in the following challenges:

Stamping Sensations...... Say It With Flowers
Allsorts..... Anything Goes
NBUS...... Never Before Used Stuff (Sheena Douglas Stamp)

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Take care and stay safe

Lovely card and beautifully coloured - not heard of these pens before but, like you, I have so many things for colouring with I mustn't be tempted with any more.

This is stunning, Sue! I love the color, sediment, and design and will look into those pens, so thanks for the tip! If you make a different design layout using that scrummy rose and take a photo of the two cards together, we'd love to see you in the Twofer gallery! (Shameless plug!) Take care and keep safe! Hugs, Darnell

Hi Sue

What a gorgeous flower .. .. you have coloured it beautifully .. .. and yes, the sentiment is very appropriate at the moment.

Hope the men enjoyed their fishing. It is many years now since I used to accompany my Dad on his fishing trips. Not that I fished .. .. I just used to race the maggots to see which colour moved the quickest (such a lovely child!!) LOL!!

Love Jules xx
