New year, new chain!

It’s reveal day over at Card Chain Challenge. The first chain of 2020 saw my card winging its way to Shylaa in India.

From the options on offer I chose the colour palette and die cuts.

I finally caved in and added some pretty floral dies to my birthday wish list and was lucky enough to get these. I cut them from watercolour paper and used a combination of watercolour pencils and a Momento marker to add colour. A little bit of background stamping and my “trademark” rounded corner finish it off.

Stamps:
19th Century French Script and Say It All (both Hero Arts)

Paper:
Bristol board 
Watercolour paper

Ink:
Tim Holtz Distress by Ranger (Walnut Stain)

Other:
Tim Holtz/Sizzix dies (Wildflower Stems #1)
Watercolour pencils (Emerald Green, Light Violet)
Momento marker (Lulu Lavender)
Silver gel pen
Corner Chomper 
Pinflair glue gel

There are still a few days left to sign up for February’s chain if you fancy it - make and send one card, get a lovely handmade card from somebody else!

Thanks for stopping by!

I think this idea is so cool and what a great way to kick it off-to a far away destination!

Pretty!

What a lovely card, Joanne. I still get a kick out of sending a card each month, especially when it's travelling across the world, Jo x
