Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight-Water & Candy Winner

Hi there everyone, first of all I would like to say a BIG Thank You for all your kind comments about my toothache. I am still in agony and the left side of my face is swollen. I did manage to get a dentist but can't see the dentist until February 24th. Although she did give me the number for the emergency dentist so, I will try to get an appointment tomorrow.

We have another spotlight challenge for you over at Crafty Cardmakers. The theme this time, has been chosen by me and it's WATER. So we would like you to use something you add water to or water has been added eg. spritzers, glimmer mists, H2o's, watercolour paints or pencils etc.

I decided to use my Faber Castell watercolour pencils and waterbrush for this one, I haven't used them for ages and really enjoyed colouring the Dimension Fourth owl and house in. I used  Go Kreate dies to make the shaped card and cut out flowers & leaves from pattern paper. I added a LOTV sentiment to finish.

  20. Love the shape of your card and it looks so funky with your gorgeous owl.

    I so have sympathy with your poor tooth. I was plagued with abscesses for years and there is NOTHING more painful. I remember once thinking of jumping off a bridge in the hopes it would knock the tooth out!

    Hope you get it pulled quickly.
