Feel better with lilies

Hello, crafting friends!
It's Thursday and time for a therapeutic dose of Tic Tac Toe inspiration! Betty has created a lovely board this week:

I've chosen the bottom line - Watercolor/ Bright Colors/Floral and have made a card for someone who is a bit under the weather.

I stamped one of the lilies from Uniko's Pure Florals Lily onto a thick card base and watercoloured it with diluted inks. When it was dry I added detail with coloured pencils. 

The flower was masked while I positioned the Trellis Background from Funky Fossil and inked into it with blue ink. To finish, I stamped a sentiment from MFT and added a sprinkling of sequins.
Okay, so now it's your turn! Which row, column or diagonal will you choose this week? Do hop over to the Tic Tac Toe challenge site to check out the wonderful samples my teamies have made to inspire you. When you're ready to share your own creation, you'll find the Linky Tool at the bottom of the post. Looking forward to seeing what you make!

I'm linking this card up at Happy Little Stampers Watercolour challenge; also Stamping Sensations where the theme is Summer Flowers.

Apologies for the late news - early readers will have seen a blank space here. There are those that would tell you that is an accurate representation of what goes on in my head but I would insist that is just slander!! The truth is that I have been in a bit of a social frenzy this week; that's a bit like a shark feeding frenzy but with less sharks and more cakes!

Sending hugs,


  1. The sunny colours of your Lily would cheer up anyone who was feeling under the weather,the details on the petals are beautiful
