Two more cards

Recently we had two events to celebrates the first was the 50th wedding annaversary of my dear friends Norm and Pat.  We had a lovely afternoon with them.

 I cased this card from Michelle Zindorf.  I am getting better with the brayer but would love to attend one of her classes for some tips.

The other event was my fathers birthday.  I'm not sure where the instructions for this fish came from but it makes for a great man card.

JAI Colour challenge JAI#161

This weeks JAI challenge is to use colour.  Specifically Midnight Muse, More Mustard and Rich Razzleberry.  

I decided to use water colour paper for the first time!  I added colour with the direct to paper technique. Thats where you just rub the ink pad on the paper.  I then sprayed the paper with water to give texture. Thanks to Charlene Merrich for the inspiration for this card.
