Beautiful...Colour Throwdown Challenge #409

Hello,

Hope you had a most wonderful weekend! Mine was spent puttering about and 'trying' to craft, but for some reason, Mr. Mojo was on vacation. I wonder if he headed to Eastern Canada with my husband, to help officiate bike races....

Anyway, just as I was 'starting' to feel some semblance of creativity surfacing, I received a note from my 'side job' boss (who is simply awesome!). letting me know that an editing job was headed my way.  If you want to know anything about oil reservoirs, steam chambers, solvents and bitumen, just let me know; I may have the answers!

As I need to get back to the thesis, this will be a quick post - as will the next - for a couple cards I made earlier in the week and over the weekend.

My two cards here are for Colour Throwdown Challenge #409, with a photo and palette that are simply wonderful


I've been practicing my water-colouring with Concord and 9th's Wildflowers...



Still plenty of room for improvement, but a bit of headway happening...

Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me; your visit brings me joy!

  12. I've avoided that set because I always struggle putting together random groupings - but you've inspired me. The splash of flowers diagonally across the card is a great look. I love how you've colored them.
