Two kind of the same but different

Ahhh boo hoo, I can't believe it's back to work tomorrow.  That time off just flew in!  Next time off to aim for is Greg's birthday at the start of Feb (it would be rude not to spend it with him LOL) and then I think St Patrick's Day is the next.  Not that I'm counting hahaha

I've 2 cards following the same techniques this evening.
This first one is based on this week's featured stamper over at Splitcoast - here's Tara's original.  I used a stencil instead of the zigzag lines, and a Simon Says Stamp floral stamp set.

My second card uses this oldie from Lili of the Valley that seems to be one of my Go To stamps for sympathy cards.  Coloured with watercolour pencils.  I've also used one of my favourite techniques of inking up a stencil and then splattering it with watercolours (though I was kinda heavy with my splatters on this one)


  1. These are really lovely Lynne, the stencil really makes fkr a great background, I should dig mine out and be a bit more adventurous!! xx

  2. Beautiful card Lynne. Thank you for playing along with our Challenge at Penny’s Paper-Crafty. We would love to see you again ... Anet DTx

  4. ADORE the shading of your background and the attentions to details are simply FAB! So glad that you join the fun over Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge! Awesome details and design! Super work!

  8. Both are beautiful cards, I love how you have used the partial stencil for both, very nice look and great way to add background without overdoing it.

  9. Two beautiful cards. I love the little hint of the brick wall behind the first card. Great colors and love the hint of spring. So glad you shared over at Inspiration Destination.

  10. Absolutely gorgeous cards, Lynne! I love your soft stenciled backgrounds. Thanks for joining us at HLS Watercolour Challenge!

  11. Hi Lynne! Your coloring is so lovely on both cards. The bg on the 2nd is a favorite. So soft and complements those gorgeous blooms perfectly. So glad you played along at HLS 1st watercolor challenge!
