I love water colouring and this Langton card is good but I haven't yet found a watercolour card that's really white if anyone know s a brand that is a really good white I'd love to hear from you.
 
 
I promised  in my earlier post this week that I would show you the candles when I got them bagged up this photo is OK but the cellophane has not come out well in the photo but you can see the matching tags and  the overall idea.

 
 
 
Now something different .Yesterday I spent a lovely afternoon at Wynyard Hall celebrating my friend Ian's retirement. We are all ex work colleagues and had a great afternoon and the lovely expensive Champagne Ian treated us to made for a perfect afternoon. This is us all having lunch.
 
 
 
A long post today but hope you enjoy reading it. Have a great weekend and  keep crafting .

Absolutely beautiful card Carole. The image is so lovely painted like that. Everything you've chosen for this card is fab. I love the flowers and the little angel. Well done you!
The candles look great finished off with the tags and cellophane. Anyone would be thrilled to receive one for Xmas.
What a grand place to have lunch so champagne really was a must have for your surroundings! You look very elegant in the photo. I'm glad you had a lovely time.
If you look on Bev Rochester's blog under the heading FAQ she tells you which watercolour paper she prefers that is whiter. I've never painted so is it hard to master distress ink painting?
Have a good weekend :-) Debra xx
