Water Coloured Peonies ...

Hi Everybody,

Water colouring is fast becoming my way to relax and I am thoroughly enjoying playing with the new Gansai Tambi set that Santa brought me

The image is from the stamp set Peony Scrolls from Altenew and it also has a matching die set.

I bought mine from Make the Day Special and at present they are upgrading their website so I will link to them for the stamp and die at a later date.

So tonight is New Years Eve and if you are out and about then take care and have a good time

Please come back to visit tomorrow as there is a really good prize of crafting "Goodies" on offer for you to start the New Year

More tomorrow...

Hugs xx


  1. Morning Christina, a beautiful card I used to love to watercolour but not done much last couple of years really must get my stuff out and do more as you say it is very relaxing. Happy Hogmanay everyone stay safe and happy.

  12. Very pretty card Christina, sad to say I am not very good with water colours, but I did make two cards yesterday cutting the die like you showed, one was mauve and the other gold for a golden wedding card, quite pleased with them I used Sue Wiksons Herald square (the only square die I have) .well the sun is shining here so maybe I will go out fir awhile.
    Enjoy the day. Hazel c uk

Looking forward to more fantastic cards. Thanks for all your inspiration over the past years. Love and a big hug Margaret xx

  24. Hi Christina,
    When I grow up I want to be able to colour as good as you lol!! Okay, I know I'm all grown up already so there's no hope :). I love the colours you chose for this card. I really must get a set of the paints in the new year.
    Not too long to go now until 2016 creeps over the threshold...a lot of people seem to be celebrating early from the sound of the fireworks outside. I hope you and you family have a wonderful New Year and safe celebrations. See you next year.
