Return of the Gerbera ...

It's difficult for me to stay away from my Gerbera stamp for too long and here it is back again!

Before I begin I need to say a big 'Thank You' to the designers over at "Less is More" as they have selected me as the monthly winner for May.  I love this challenge blog and try to enter a card every week - they are so supportive of all the people that enter the challenges. I'm honoured, thank you!

It seems fitting that tonight's post is a card created for this week's challenge at "Less is More" where the challenge is to use Watercolour.  

I first masked a square in the top half of the card, stamped the gerbera and drew in the square with a fine liner.  I watercoloured the image and then cut away the square.  Less talk, more action - here is the card:

You can see garden through the aperture!

I used:
Uniko Studio stamp set - Pure Florals: Gerbera
Windsor and Newton Watercolour paints



  1. Just stunning Elaine!
    What a fabulous colour and the cut out design is really effective!
    Thanks so much
