Fifth Avenue Watercolour

I’ve been on school holidays for the last two weeks which means I have had lots of spare time to stamp! I have lots of cards and photos to share, so thought I would post a few more photos before I go back to the busyness of the new term.

 

As I was saying in my last post, the Fifth Avenue Floral stamps are perfect for water colouring. I’ve been having a go at water colouring the different flower images and I think (I hope!) my technique is improving! It really is one of those techniques where practise makes perfect!

 

If you’re getting tired of the Fifth Avenue Floral images… I’ll try to show something different next time! I have been using my other stamps – but this set is definitely my new favourite!

 

Here are some of my watercolour creations:

Fifth Avenue Floral

I received my box of goodies from the new catalogue last Tuesday (very exciting!) and have been happily playing and creating! I thought I’d show some of the designs I have created so far.

These cards all use the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set, plus a few greetings from the Upsy Daisy stamp set. When I first saw Fifth Avenue Floral in the new catalogue, I loved it and just had to have it! I had seen it on a number of US blogs before and it looked gorgeous. After having some creating time myself, I realised how versatile it really is. The stamps are great used individually as a focal point, as a background, to make your own designer paper, for paper piecing and for watercolouring.

These designs all use a similar colour scheme, which was taken from the new Catalogue – it really is great for inspiration!
