Colourful Card Corners

Happy New Year everyone! Back to it at last. The Make It Monday challenge this week is to create a card with the focal element in one corner of your card. You can watch Danielle's video tutorial here.

I stayed pretty true to Danielle's design here. I stamped the flowers from my new stamp set 'Pretty Petals' onto my watercolour paper and then stamped some of the open circles from 'Polka Dot Basics' in second generation grey in the remaining open space. I watercoloured in a bit with some blue ink (on my first card I used too much water and some of my pretty flowers started to run), stamped the sentiement and mounted my piece onto some black cardstock and then a watercolour card base.

Stamps - Pretty Petals, Thank You Kindly, Polka Dot Basics (PTI)
Paper - watercolour paper, Black CS (SU)
Ink - Tulip, Grey Wool, Sunflower, Sunset, Pear, Heavenly Blue (CTMH), Memento Tuxedo Black


  1. Don't you just love this little stamp set?!!! I've gotten more use out of mine and just love it! Really liking the colors you chose for your flowers (so bold) and then the subtle water colored background...well done!! :0)

  2. I also really like this little stamp set and I love what you've done with it here. Your card shines!

  3. ...and another beauty!
    Love this!

  4. Love all of the color on this! Beautiful!


Thanks so much for your kind comments, they always make my day.
