Just a note to say you made my day! for Creative Expressions

My make for Creative Expressions this week is a a card. I made it to say thank you to 
a friend of a friend, who let me take pictures of Friesian cows on her farm.
Why you might ask?? Well I wanted to paint a farmyard scene with cows in it, so watch this space.


I love the carnation stamp on the Floral Silhouette stamp set from Creative Expressions, it's one of the many great flower stamps on the set. Here I've used Tim Holtz Distress Markers on the stamp and misted water over the top to rehydrate it. 


Then stamped it onto my watercolour card. I really love this quick and easy watercolour effect.


Here is a close up of the finished flowers along with the flourish stamp which is also on the same stamp set.
I really enjoyed making this card this week.

The sentiment is from the Special Sentiments stamp set also from Creative Expressions. 


Even though the weather is supposed to be taking a turn for the worst from today, the sun is out and I'm happy. Here's a cheeky little cow picture which I took yesterday, they have so much character.


Have a great weekend xx

I was just having a little blog tour and stopped by the Hobby Room, which I've been meaning to do for ages! Love the effect you have achieved on that card and that lovely cow's face! Can't wait to see your painting. Such a beautiful blog, Michelle, Julie Ann x

Nice work :-) Love the watercolour effect.
I love your cow pic, although after being chased by cows yesterday I have to say I would rather look at cows FROM A DISTANCE haha!!
