More Watercolor Homework from Day 2

Thank you so much for all your encouraging comments! I love to read them all - they warm my heart! You are the best!

Today I am showing you a card that I pretty much CASEd from the card Agnieszka Malyszek made. I used my watercolor pencils (that I've had forever and don't use often enough) to make a background.

I have never used that Hello stamp (NBUS!!!) and unfortunately don't know who makes it. ETA: Anita in France told me that the stamp set is from Stampendous and it's called "Window Box"! Thanks Anita! The flower is colored with a sparkly Gel marker and I finally used some messy thread behind a panel. I love the look and admire it often on different blogs but had never done it. Next time I might try to get less ink splatters...

I also want to enter a photo over at Our Beautiful World. This weeks theme is Mirroring. I took this photo on our recent trip to NYC. I always love modern glass buildings reflecting older buildings and this one was especially interesting. But don't ask me where exactly it is...

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Love your class work, Susanne! The background is gorgeous! And your photo is captivating! Good luck on that!

  2. The watercolour background's gorgeous, Susanne ... fabulous with the black strip and splatters ... and that sweet sentiment! It's from Stampendous Window Box ... I have it! Cool and stunning photo! Anita :)
