Hugs

This is my second card for this week's High Hopes Challenge using tearing. You may recognise Hugable Hank from my watercolouring tutorial. Has anyone tried my way of watercolouring yet? I would love to know how you went!

As you can probably see from the last couple if cards, I am desperately trying to break away from using wire and flowers. I got a bit excited with that idea in the lead up to Christmas so I am doing my best to think of other ideas. So far its not going to well!! I may need to do more blogging!

Oh wow Amy why have I missed you untilnow I love your work, you have some beauties on here and I have just read your watercolour tutorial. I hope I am not being thick dear, but I have never used a blender. When you say watercolour all over do you have to wet the blender to do this, Doh!!!! I am thick I know.
Will certainly be back to visit again, going to add you to my favs list. Thanks for sharing
