Swaps and swaps

I am always up for learning something new (that's why I think I'll never stop studying!), so I am usually one of the first ones to put my hand up for a new swap. This month is a little different due to massive commitments, but over the past couple of months I have participated in 2 that I haven't yet posted - Mel's Basic Grey Mini Catalogue swap and the Happy Stampers (the team I belong to) Watercolour swap. Here are my contributions:

I was really happy with how my first attempt at spotlighting worked - it really does look better IRL.
Stamps: It's Beautiful Jumbo Wheel, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Card: Basic Grey, Ballet Blue, Pumpin Pie, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Grey, Ballet Blue
Other: 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, silver eyelet

I was a bit unsure about the watercolouring, but think I managed to pull this off - it's going to take a lot of practice to improve my confidence though!

Stamps: Oh, So Lovely (Level 1 Hostess set), Garden Whimsy

Card: Bashful Blue, Regal Rose, Watercolour paper

Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Regal Rose

Other: Certainly Celery Prints DSP, Bashful Blue brad, Rich Regals watercolour crayons, Soft Subtles Stampin' Write markers, light blue gingham ribbon

Sorry about the spacing, this is one thing I can't figure out on computers sometimes....

Thanks Mel and Karen for organising these swaps. I really enjoy being a part of them!

Hi Natasha, welcome back to blogland. I've missed you!
I think your watercolouring is great. I need to try out Spotlighting - just something I've never "got around to"
