Friends with Flair Friday


Another Friday, another Friends With Flair!!

I decided to go for a clean and simple look today for my card and used a thick watercolour cardstock to make my card base and to stamp on. I've tried using the watercolour technique before but didn't like my results but I think now that's because the stamp I used before didn't lend itself well to the technique.
Anyhow here's my card using stamps from Unity's May Store kit (available in the UK from Make the Day Special.)

Materials used: Cotman watercolour paper, Magenta maruyama mesh, stamps from Unity's May store kit, Marvy Le Plume pens, Kaiser rhinestones.

Also used: organza ribbon.

Don't forget to check out the other FWF participants and look for the special blinkie to be in with a chance of winning some stamps...see the list on the Unity blog or you can go straight to Gwen's blog (where you can see pics of her gorgeous new grandson!).

Thanks for visiting!!
